Crafting for all Seasons Birthday Challenge

The challenge this fortnight over at Crafting for all Seasons is Birthday! The design team had the opportunity to play with images from Meljen's Designs, have a nosey at the site, there are some lovely digi stamps and a Freebie available every Monday! The prize for this challenege will be 4 images from Meljen's Designs.

I used the Birthday Cupcake and created this card:

I am really pleased with this card. I love the colour of the papers and managed to find a ribbon in my stash that matched perfectly! I made the flowers myself following a new technique I found. The edges of the paper were stitched, this was the first time I incorporated stitching into one of my cards. I sparkled the stars from the cupcake using Creative Expressions Cosmic Shimmers.

Good luck!!
