Birthday Girl

Welcome back to the final day of our blog hop to celebrate our 2nd birthday at STAMPlorations.
It's been such fun playing with the new stamp sets. Today I'm using another couple of elements from Dee's fab Party Mates set.



I stamped and masked the plain cupcake to create the tiered cake then added the candles, colouring with Copics, then fussy cut. Using the sketch from Paper Players, I mono printed the background using an acrylic block and a couple of pinkish w/c pens. The circular panel was cut then embossed with a doily EF I got free with a mag, a strip of gold and a banner stamped with one of the Party Time greetings were attached with a couple of Tim Holtz scribbled diecuts under the edge. To finish I added a button with twine bow and a few sequins.
