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:

May all your wishes come true

I seem to be a bit stuck in a 'fairy' mode atm. Having used some of the 'fairy blossom' components from the  Hunkydory kit that came yesterday, I decided that, instead of putting the offcuts away, I'd make another couple of cards straight away - so that explains the concentration atm on fairies! So this is another birthday card - this time I've used a piece cut from an A4 card in the kit to make the border down the left hand side. I've used Craftwork cards sentiments, a folded doiley from Poundland and a little bunch of roses with bow and buttons.
