Birthday bash

This is for The shabby tea room 109: birthday bash, where this inspiration photo is given and we were asked to create a birthday card inspired by the photo and include a cupcake.

For the background I used an offcut of a piece of Kanban Dawn Bibby designs cupcakes sugar dots, part of a kit I bought ages ago - the cupcake came from the same kit. I only really bought the original kit because there were cupcake stamps with it ... and I'm still trying to use up the rest of the kit! The bunting and cocktails are 3D stickers.

Banners or bunting figure in a couple more challenges this week:

Emerald faerie garden 21: let's see a banner
