Bloggers' Challenge -- Happy Birthday!

This week's theme, as you may have already guessed, is a birthday theme. Lisa is our list mom (she puts out the Challenges to us) has a birthday coming, this is kind of like a mini birthday party for her! Happy Birthday, Lisa!! (Hope it's a great one!)

This card was a fun one to I made about a month ago for the birthday of a very good friend.  I took my colors for the card from this DSP, Sweet & Sour Specialty paper.  The DSP was layered onto a base of Rose Red CS.  Then there's that scallop square created by the Scallop Square Duo Die and my Big Shot, topped with a couple of layers of CS...can you see them?  A bit of Pink Pirouette shows through under the Whisper White layer, but on top of the Pumpkin Pie. 

And how cute is that cupcake?  It's from the fun little set in the Occasions Mini, Create a Cupcake and the matching punch.  I was so happy with the way this card came out...but, it definitely was inspired by this one here.  Now, if you've clicked on that link and you are a SU Demonstrator, you should be able to click right over, but, if you are not, you cannot view the inspiration sample (so sorry!), as it is located on a demo-only site.  (Another reason you NEED to become a SU demo!!)

Oh, and that bow...made with the luscious Whisper White Satin ribbon....was created with the Bow Easy (a non-SU item)....something I received as a gift and makes the best, most perfect bows!  Well, that's it for today.  Thank you so much for stopping by today...hope you enjoyed today's share.
