Fabulous Birthday

Here is the 2nd design in my card set.  I was excited to use this set because I had just bought the coordinating dies. Baby button bits has been one of my favorites since it came out and I was super excited when the coordinating dies just came out in May!  I love this cupcake image and use it quite a bit either for baby or for birthday.
 If any of you were keeping up with my last set of cards I made a few months back, you might remember that I said that I used old sketches to keep things moving along. I did the same thing with this set and this is a semi-recent Mojo Monday sketch.

Rather than add a button on top, like the stamp set suggests, I used a rolled felt rose.  If you haven't noticed...I am just a little bit obsessed.  I added a little pearl to the center for some added interest as well as some glitter on the icing of the cupcake.  I paper pieced the cupcake liner which is one of my favorite things to do with this particular image.

The finishing touches are some ribbon folded in half with a button and twine cinching it in half.  I also used the new label and die from the Boutique collection from PTI. The coordinating phrases are for baby, but this birthday sentiment worked just as well.  A button and stitching at the top finished it off! Thanks for fluttering by!

P.S. When my husband saw this card he mentioned that it looked like it was for a juvenile girl, but I had intended it to be for any female. You will have to let me know what you think.

It seems to me to be versatile enough for anyone. Love the colors and the buttons and flower!
