My last few cards I've been using a lot of Distress Inks. This card is no exception, although I kept it to only two colors this time- Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry. Two very bright pinks!
For my card background I stamped hearts in a pattern across the white cardstock. Then, I cut a panel with my Cricut and blended the two Distress Ink colors on that to make it perfectly pink. I adhered the panel to the front, using a little craft foam on the back to give it some dimension. Then (I wish you could see from the picture), I spritzed the pink panel with some Tsukineko's Sparkle Shimmer Mist. It gives it just the right amount of glitz.
Then, I used my Cricut again to cut a little scalloped circle which I adhered a fussy-cut and colored cupcake to. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black Ink and adhered it with foam squares. I used Simon Says Stamp's "It's Your Birthday!" stamp set. Lastly, I added a little Glossy Accents to the candle flame and a few tiny pearl beads for embellishment. I think they look like little sprinkles.
And that's it! I can think of a few little girls I'd love to send this card to. :)
