#happy birthday

I've had this Smartphone die for a couple months now and finally got to use it!!  Isn't it cute?  After putting it together, I realized the dark purple and the dark gray combo makes it a little hard to see the detail of the phone.  I made this for a young friend of mine that is turning 17.  So what do 17 year-old-girls like?  Smartphones!  And this one also happens to like making cupcakes (so do I!), so I combined both together to create this really fun card.  I used the same cupcake set to create the border down the right hand side AND the "patterned paper" on the left side.
