Limelight #67: bday card

Not much crafting time this week, but I was glad to complete one card.  I checked the calendar and we have 11 birthdays in March and April in the family.  Good time to make a birthday card or two or eleven!   I used the Sketch for the Limelight Papercrafts Challenge #67: Use String.  I picked up the Basic Grey paper pack "Cupcake" for $5 at Michaels and paired it with a small Basic Grey stamp set I picked up at Big Lots for .50! 

I stamped the cupcake and hat, colored them with pencils, cut them out and decorated them with Stickles, dimensional paint (frosting) and glossy accents (candle stick).  
I wrapped the top panel with MS baker's twine. 

My 50 cent stamp score:

Here's the Sketch:

Paper: Basic Grey "Cupcake"
Stamps: Basic Grey
Ink: Memento black and Stampin up red
Other: stickles, Prismacolor pencils, liquid dimensional paint, tag, MS baker's twine, glossy accents

This card can be for a male or female any age.  Lovin' this paper pack!
Thanks for stopping by today!
