Blow Out Your Candles One by One!

Hi guys! I have a cute card to show you but first I just have to say that it has been some week! One or all of us have been sick at my house for over a week now and it has been a real drag. Oh my gosh, I can't wait to get everyone well again! Just to get today's card photographed was a comedy of errors. I took the photos 3 different times but twice, they were way too dark and I didn't edit the photos until after sundown so it was too late to do anything. Anywho, wanna see?
And a side shot for detail:
I combined the Celebrations DSP with the new Build a Cupcake punch for a simple but fun birthday card that would be fine for any age or gender. That sentiment is from the new Bring on the Cake set featured in the Occasions Mini catalog. Isn't that cute? The set comes in 2 cases with a whopping 13 images at your disposal. That's a lot of birthday cards!

The colors I used here are Pear Pizazz, Real Red, and Bashful Blue along with classic Whisper White which are all coordinates of this DSP assortment. The focal point image is set off in a 2 3/8" Scalloped circle punch trimmed with a 2 1/2" Circle punch. I embossed the blue panel with my Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. A little bit of Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon and a white Designer button tied with Linen Thread complete my greeting. I hope you like this card. I have a couple more coming up that I think you'll like too. I have several new stamp sets and accessories I have been playing with this week so check back to see them used. Bye!


  1. Sorry about your week. Hope the weekend is better.
    Great Card. I am thinking that I need that cupcake punch.

  2. Love that card and the colors. Not the colors I usually think of when I think birthday card, but they are awesome. Great for a masculine birthday card, too. Hope you're all well for the weekend!
