birthday bliss...

Birthday season is kicking off next week for my crew. My guy celebrates first then a whole slew of birthdays follow.. I can't wait for mine to come around ;) I am one of those people who love celebrating my birthday, don't care who knows my age..Often people are shocked when I tell them how old I really am.
I have found that I'm usually last minute for making birthday cards. So when I stumbled across this blog, you can imagine how I felt. Such a great idea, having birthday card challenges so you are always with in arms reach of a fab birthday card.
Diving right in with the current challenge.. again, barely squeezing in before the deadline..a result of just finding the site...The inspiration picture was a beauty! I decided to play with the banner detail...I'm hooked on banners lately..using up little scraps..making a shabby cupcake.. using some corrugated cardboard painted and glittered up. Every cupcake needs a little glitter...
Trying to capture the 3d effects of the cupcake icing..all sorts of buttons, trims, stitching..I love the way this one turned out.
What do ya think? Does it pass the grade :) I better get this posted over on Birthday Sundaes blog before time runs out. Give it a check. I can't wait for the next challenge.
Thanks for stopping by!
Stay sweet :)
