Wee Memories #50: b-day card

I am sharing a birthday card for our nephew.
I was inspired by Wee Memories Challenge #50, which is a color challenge this week. 
The inspiration photo urged me to take a multi-color approach for a festive card.

The cupcake was stamped on 5 different colors of cardstock as well as white.
I paper pieced the icing to the colored pieces and added dimensional paint to the icing.
Cutting these tiny pieces is really getting to be a challenge.
I must get to the eye doctor. 
Time for a check up when ya can't see anything up close.

Inspiration Photo:

Papers:  Basic Grey "cupcake" and cardstock
Stamps:  Lawn Fawn "Bannerific" and Basic Grey value set
Ink: Memento black, Faded Jeans distress
Other: Thickers #5, dimensional paint, pop dots, twine, Stickles

Thanks for coming by!
