Happy 16th Birthday Megan!

It's my beautiful daughter's 16th birthday today-Happy Birthday Megan! The wrapping paper was my inspiration for the colors and I used the Clean & Simple FTL#117 here to make this bright and cheery card for my bright, beautiful, funny, loving daughter! She goes for her drivers licence test on Monday so we'll see what happens then.
I used Crumb Cake for the card stock base. Then I added some Real Red and DSP from the Patterns DSP Brights stack. I colored the cupcake from Got Treats with the Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise Stampin write markers and punched that out with the XL 1 3/4 inch Circle punch. I added a Pumpkin Pie piece punched with the XL Fancy Flower punch. I colored "Sweet" from Got Treats with the Real Red Stampin write marker and 16 from a non-SU set. That was punched with the 1 1/4 inch circle punch and added to a Real Red piece punched with the 1 3/8 inch circle punch. I used the Perfect Plum and Real Red Stampin write markers to color the cupcake from On a Pedestal, punched it out with the 1 3/8 inch circle punch. That was layered onto a Perfect Plum piece punched with the 1 3/4 in XL Scallop circle punch. A strip of Tempting Turquoise was run thru the Scallop Edge border punch. Finally, Happy Birthday from On Your Birthday was stamped in Real Red and punched out with the Word Window punch.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: On Your Birthday, On a Pedestal, Got Treats, non SU numbers
Papers: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Real Red, Perfect Plum, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Patterns DSP Brights Stack
