Happy Birthday!

I can't believe it! I am OUT of birthday cards!  How did that happen?   So I'm resurrecting some of my older Stampin Up stamps to restock. This stamp is from the Darling Dots set and I've jazzed up the cupcake with Sparkle N Sprinkle's Aqua Shimmer and White Spark embossing powders.  The cardstock is Stampin Up's Pool Party, and the sentiment is SU, but I don't remember the name of the set.  The circle punches are SU but the border on the sentiment is Fiskars.  The ribbon is Really Reasonable Ribbon folded on a piece of Tearific Tape from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The little red rhinestones are just from my stash.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

  10. Gerlinde, this is an amazing card! Love the pop up frosting on the cupcakes - and the beautiful color! I wish I was as adept with the ribbon folding as you are. Did you start from the left going right, or the other way? It's a beautiful card, Gerlinde.
