Penny's challenge 365

This is my design card for Penny's challenge 365 - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting by the rest of the team and we hope you will join in our 'anything goes' challenge.

I used the lovely Delicious Doodles A slice of cake (they are one of the sponsors of the challenge), colouring digitally in Microsoft Paint. The image was printed and die cut with a todo die, using a larger one to layer with some Kanban birthday sentiment  card, using another colour for the background. Ribbons from stash, little cupcake shakers from Paperchase and the banner from Poundland.
