Bright and Happy Party Cake and Flowers

This week at There's Magic in the Air Nilla had a challenge to use  the supplied image "Party Cake" by Paper Cupcakes in a project.  I combined this with a layout by Jay Jay at The Pixie Cottage with the added option of "Double Up" to use two stamps on the card.

I printed the digital image and colored it with Pencils and OMS and Glitter Pens. I cut this and matted on pink CS and inked all the edges with distress ink.  I attached 3 bright ribbon stripes onto the base card of Oyster Pearl and assembled the card. Added 2 flowers of crepe paper on paper flowers and stamped sentiment with Versamark and embossed with Gold EP.
Challenges:
TMITA: Use Party Cake
The Pixie Cottage: Sketch and "Double Up" 
Digital Tuesday: Make Birthday Card
Joan's Garden: Do a birthday card using something bright and happy adding some kind of flower.

Stamp:  Creative Clear Stamps "Make a Wish"

Theresa, This is soo pretty, those flowers are amazing and so party like! Reminds me when my mom made me a flower out of crete paper when I was a teenager... although it rained, so I was not nearly as pretty as those! LOL...
