Inspiration......Happy Birthday to you

Happy Monday Peeps!!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using a new (to me) challenge.

I took my inspiration from the colors in the cute little cupcakes. 

I started by coloring the pretty flower from the Stampin Up Birthday Blooms stamp set,

I colored using Real Red and Cherry Cobbler for the flower and the leaves are colored with Wild Wasabi and Garden Green.

I fussy cut the image out and set aside to make the rest of the card.

The base of the card is Basic Black card stock followed by a layer of Cherry Cobbler card stock.
I used a piece of Whisper White Thick card stock and stenciled with Marina Mist ink. I used a Tim Holtz stencil.

The sentiment is from the Party Pants stamp set which was a special Sale-A-Bration set and I stamped with Black Memento Ink.
I added the flower to this piece with dimensionals. I added a small strip of Black and white DSP from the Neutrals pack. I then added a few silver *non SU pearls and a little twine bow. I then covered all of the flowers on here with my wink of stella pen giving it such a nice glittery glow. Which does not show on camera :(

The toppings this week is coloring.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, you know I must share another pic of baby Audrey:

She is a constant source of joy to us.
