Happy Birthday to You

Hi everyone,

Today is the start of the latest fun challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More - Bingo Challenge #4.  Here's the bingo card and rules:

Your entry must follow the Bingo card provided.  Choose a line - vertical, horizontal or diagonal.  When there is a free box in the line, try not to use any of the other elements already provided on the bingo card (just the two elements in your line and any others that aren't listed).  Use your imagination!

I chose the vertical line on the right-hand side (B'day, Stripes, White) to create a fun and cheerful birthday card.

The cupcake was created using a die from C.C. Designs, with Martha Stewart's Sparkle Texture Effect for the frosting (love the texture and glitter accents).  I glued together three each of the cupcake paper and the frosting die pieces to give the die more thickness and umph!  I then used dimensionals to pop the pieces up and create even more depth.  I love the whimsical font of the Paper Smooches sentiment.  Added a 1 1/4" strip of the same designer paper to the bottom inside of the card to give it some interest.

Hope you like.
