Birthday Wishes!

Birthday Bash!

Hi Friends!

Celebration time come on!  Remember that song?!  I'm probably dating myself!  But, it's time to celebrate when it's birthday time!  I have several cards to make for June birthdays, so I thought I'd get started.  Just look at that fun/sweet inspiration photo from the The Shabby Tea RoomWe were to use a cupcake on the card.  So, if you look closely, there's a sweet little cupcake.  I found some great pom pom trim from Martha Stewart on one of my shopping trips.  I used some chipboard and covered it with Melissa Frances paper.  Lots of layers and distressing with tea dye ink.  Ribbon, button, gems, and sewing to finish off my card.  Mmmm cupcakes...I think I'm getting hungry!  Thanks for stopping by today, friends! 
Take care, hugs!!
