A Birthday Card for Lily

I put away my Christmas projects to make a birthday card for my niece, Lily. I used the Create with Connie & Mary sketch#125 here after I saw a darling card by Carrie Gaskin that used this sketch.  I started with a base of Melon Mambo and added DSP from the Patterns DSP Brights Stack. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig for all the stamps from On a Pedestal. The base was stamped in Concord Crush, the present in Real Red and Pumpkin Pie and the top cupcake in Concord Crush and Melon Mambo. Oh, and the candle in Real Red and Pumpkin Pie. I stamped the sentiment in Melon Mambo, punched it out with the 1 1/4 inch Square punch and layered in onto a Melon Mambo piece punched with the Scallop Square punch. That whole piece was then popped up with Stampin dimensionals.I matted that with Concord Crush and added a strip of Pumpkin Pie that was run thru the Scallop Edge Border punch. I stamped the tag from Birthday Bakery in Concord Crush and added a Concord piece punched with the Large Tag punch. I colored that in with Concord Crush, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red Stampin write markers. Then I added a Pumpkin Pie Glitter brad and more Stampin dimensionals. Finally, some 1/4 inch Pumpkin Pie and Real Red grosgrain finish it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: On a Pedestal and Birthday Bakery
Papers: Whisper White, Concord Crush, Melon Mambo, Patterns DSP Brights Stack
Inks: Concord Crush Classic Stampin pad, Concord Crush, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red Stampin Write markers
Accessories: 1 1/4 inch Square punch, Scallop square punch, Scallop Edge border punch, Pumpkin Pie Glitter brad, Stampin dimensionals, 1/4 inch Pumpkin Pie and Real Red grosgrain
