The Seventeeth Challenge for The Paper Shelter - "Celebrate"

I dont know where these weeks go but here we are at yet another Challenge and this one is our Seventeeth one and theme for this one is "Celebration" and Im sure that should be an easy one for you as we are always having to make cards for one "Celebration" or another. Anyway as always our fabulous sponsers are The Paper Shelter.
And as always they are offering a prize of $15 for the winner who is chosen by the random number picker, and if youve used one of their fabulous images your will win the whole voucher, but even if you havent you will still win one of their images. You really should pop over to The Paper Shelter Website and see for yourself what stunning images they have to offer, and they also now do co-ordinating papers as well so you just carnt loose, and the value for money is second to none.
Anyway heres my card for this Challenge.
And I have chosen this "Birthday Celebration" design and the banner for my card, you will find that here and the papers are also from The Paper Shelter and they are called "Birthday Cupcake" and you will find them here. Ive printed both the cake and the banner onto white card then used my tria and copic pens to colour befor then using my rotatrim to cut them out, I must also admit that I cut around the banner to fit over the cake better. I then also cut a mount for it and penned in the Happy Birthday message on the banner. I also used some glossy accents on the ballons.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with my first mount of blue pearlescent card onto this I have used my first paper which has a cupcake design all over it, the second mount is a yellow paper with multi coloured spots on and my third is a stripe one and the mounted image was then positioned in the middle. To finish of I found two cupcake buttons and stuck them down the left hand side from the top.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pop across to The Papers Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented team have created for your inspiration and then perhaps you will also decide to take part in this weeks Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
