Happy Birthday!

This week the challenge at Meljen's Designs is to create cards that move.  I had seen a sketch a while back that I really liked, so I decided to use that as the inspiration for my card.  I used the images Happy Birthday (which is a freebie you can get on the website) and Triple Treat Cupcakes (also a freebie that you can get here).  I colored everything using Triart and Copic markers.  I used the DeNami Design N133 Polka Dot Background stamp for the design on the bottom of the card.  If you haven't heard about this company, you should visit their website.  Their stamps are wonderful!  I used my new Double Loops border punch from Martha Stewart to create the decorative strip.

I hung each of the mini cupcakes from a piece of thread using a small rhinestone. It was much easier than trying to tie that teeny knot!

The challenge at Totally Papercrafts this week is Happy Birthday and they are being sponsored by Meljen's Designs!  I am entering this card in that challenge as well.

Card measures 5.5 x 4.25"
Ribbon from Target
Rhinestones from JoAnn's
