Happy Birthday!

I haven't made a birthday card in a LONG time (at least it feels like it!) 
Birthday Sundaes is having a challenge - get messy! Here's what i did! 
I cut this cupcake in white cardstock -it's from the From My Kitchen cartridge. The sentiment is from Scrappy Mom's Simple Sentiments
I went ahead and colored the pieces with Tim Holtz Distress Inks using the blending tool. 
circle/"cherry" - Barn Door
the top of the cupcake - Spun Sugar 
the silhouette-like of the cupcake top - Victorian Velvet
cherry leaf - Crushed Olive
bottom layer of the cupcake wrapper - Broken China
top layer of the cupcake wrapper - Faded Jeans
 I cut the scallop circle and circle also in white cardstock from the Art Philosophy cartridge. 
 I colored it using the blending tool also. The scallop circle is colored with Broken China and the circle with Wild Honey. 
 I then sprayed it with only water with my mini mister to give it a blotchy look. (not sure if you can see it) Hopefully you can in at least one of these photos. :/ 
I used Perfect Pearls with Perfect Medium to give it some shine and finished it off with very little doodling on the cherry and wrapper. 
I also inked the edges of the patterned paper with Broken China. Again, here's the final outcome :) 
I'm also linking this up to:
Made Especially For You - Use faux or real stitching

Thanks so much for looking and have a great weekend!
