Birthday Wishes!

Hello there! Hope that you have had a full and happy day! Our day started with an early morning soccer game and then errands and then ended with a birthday party! My son's team won their game and I had just enough time to run home and make a bday card and get the kids to the party!

It is always such a challenge to me to try to make a masculine card! The only thing harder than making a masculine card is making one for a 17 year old teenager! LOL I went with blues and browns but couldn't resist using a yummy cupcake image with some sparkle! The teenager in question is a really great kid would appreciate anything we did for him so I wasn't too worried about the sparkle! I stuffed a gift certificate into the card, because those are one size fits all! I used the sets Crazy for Cupcakes and Sincere Salutations, both from Stampin Up! I added some chocolate chip ribbon to make the card feel balanced and then some sparkle gems! The designer paper behind the cupcake image and the card base are both from a card kit I received recently. Here is the finished card:



I am embarrassed to admit that I was able to make this card without getting up from my chair even once! LOL I had all of the needed supplies piled (very high!) on my desk! I guess I will be spending some time tomorrow cleaning up my space! :) Ok, long day so I am off in search of some zzzzz's! Hope that you have a good night! I will be back soonest! :)
