Happy Birthday

Today's effort was done to put into Card Patterns Challenge, but I was just too late to get it posted, but at least the card won't be wasted as I did it for my sister-in-law, Judith's birthday.

The cupcake image, which I coloured in with copic, and backing papers came from Funky Fairy (sadly who have stopped trading). The backing papers were from Ecclectic Lurve Part 3 - Distress 1 and Cupcake Crazy Scribbles. The ribbon, flowers and brads from my stash. The 'Happy Birthday' sentiment was stamped using a combination of Versacolor Petal Pink and Raspberry.

For the base mat I used Fiskars Threading Water punch to punch around a corner with a fiskars punch - a new technique for me and one which I can see being used regularly.

Although I missed the Card Patterns Challenge, I can still enter it into a couple of challenges. The first challenge is Bee Crafty's 3D Challenge and the second is La-La Land Crafts New Technique Challenge as the punching round the corner was a technique that I have never tried before.

Thanks for popping by.
