Pretty in Pink & Purple

Hello again,
I'm back with another post. It's another birthday card. This card is for my goddaughter/niece. It's her 20th birthday on Wednesday. I can't believe that she's turning 20 already. I remember being at the hospital the night she was born, so excited for her arrival.

I went to Clean and Simple Stamping for their sketch #170. As soon as I saw this sketch I thought of adding cupcakes to the card. My goddaughter loves pink and purple so the colours were easy to pick. I used the Silver Glimmer Paper and coloured it using my Melon Mambo Stampin' Write marker.

Here's the sketch:

Here's my card:

The details are:

CS: Melon Mambo textured, Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Silver Glimmer Paper
DSP: Brights Patterns Collection DSP
Stamp Set: Create a Cupcake
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo
Embellishments: 5/8" Rich Razzleberry Ribbon (retired)

Happy stamping,

Spice Cake Birthday
