Birthday Wishes

We had a family birthday party this weekend.  The birthday girl turned 60 and I was going to make a card that had the numbers on it, but then I wasn't completely sure she was turning 60 and it would be pretty bad to put that on a card if she wasn't.  Don't think that would have gone over well.  So, I settled for this adorable cupcake instead.  I just think it is so sweet.


Challenges:
Creative Craft Cottage #42--spots or stripes (I have both!)
Top Tip Tuesday--name that tune (umm . . .Happy Birthday)
Loves Rubberstamps #157--use a die cut
Cuttlebug Mania--sentimental journey; use a sentiment
Eureka Stamps #146--paper piecing (I paper pieced the cupcake liner)
MFT--rule of thirds (my ribbon/bow, focal panel and cupcake are placed on the top horizontal line)
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Wonderful Wednesday--anything goes
Sister Act Card Challenge #111--anything goes
If you Give a Crafter a Cookie #21--inspiration photo (I was inspired by the pink and blue and the polka dots)

Inspiration Destination #33--anything goes
Penny's Paper #232--anything goes
Fashionable Stamping #100--glitz and glamour (I used pearls, ribbon, and glittery frantage embossing powder)
Viva La Verve June week 2--sketch

Crafty Dee Bow-Z--anything goes with handmade bow
Paper Nest Dolls #16--anything goes
The Paper Girls#82--Happy Birthday
