This month's challenge at Joanna Sheen's Challenge Blog is Celebrations and I've chosen a card for a friend's birthday.
I've used a different sized card which is fast becoming my new favourite - 10 x 7.
I've used two different shades of Cordinations card to mat and layer a backing paper from the House Mouse Inserts CD. The scalloped circle is made using a Marianne die and the leafy swirls are a Cherry Lyn die. I've used Promarkers to colour the House Mouse stamp and added some glitter to the icing on the cupcake. I used a spare scrap of the backing paper to stamp onto for the cupcake wrapper and finished off with ribbon and paper flowers with card candi middles.
