Challenge #91 - The Paper Shelter - "Birthdays"

Good Morning Crafters, its only days away now to my own big birthday I know you want me to write up exactly how old I am but I find it embarrassing to actually say it out loud anyway you can see from my profile what it is, its plus one. Anyway today's Challenge over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot is just right for all of those experiencing birthday like myself its a "Birthdays" theme and I know its one of the most popular themes for making cards so you can start putting your thinking caps on while taking part in it.
As usual our very generous sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of  $30.

but as always this is providing you have used one of their products on your card, but even if you have'nt they will still give you three images of your own choice. I wish you would take a visit to their website The Paper Shelter, (click on this) and you can see for yourself what stunning and beautiful images they have for sale, they are always updating their catalogue and they also have some lovely papers that go with their images and printables, plus which they really are so reasonably priced as the exchange rate is brilliant and gives you real value for money.
Now I want to show you the card I created for this Challenge.

I used this gorgeous yummy "Birthday Cupcake" image you will find it here, and I coloured it with my copic pens then cut it out completely, and the sentiment is one of the new Britannia dies and this was cut out of pink pearlescent card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card, I then used the "Birthday Cupcake" papers from The Paper Shelter you will find them here,  the first paper is a pink background with lots of cupcakes on, and on top of this I have used a blue background with swirls on and a pink with spots on and then used my Cheery Lynn Pastry Dies to create two doilys which were then placed at angles on top of the first mount.
The Cupcake image was then placed in the center with the sentiment placed across the bottom right hand corner. To finish of I have used a rolled daisy die from Die-namics to create the three flowers in the top left hand corner, these were made with some of the left over papers and the leaves were punched with a rose leaf punch from some of the pink paper.
Now youve seen my card I do hope you will go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and I do hope you will feel able to take part in this weeks "Birthdays" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

This is lovely Shirley, love the colours and the detail. I was trying to get ahead yesterday and did the write up for my card but have not taken the pictures as yet. I like to photograph them in the daylight. I pressed publish instead of close. I will post this today. So much for being organised.
