Magical Monday~Birthdays!!!!

Who doesn't love to celebrate Birthdays? There's cake, ice cream, cupcakes......all kinds of sweets & treats!!!!

This weeks Magical Monday challenge is birthday related, anything to do with Birthdays!!!

For my card, I was inspired by a card I saw in a little insert of card ideas from Better Homes & Gardens. Of coarse, there's looks a lot better than mine, but none the less : )


I used Dogwood Cupcake from Paper Cupcakes yummy store!!

I used the Birthday embossing folder from Cuttlebug!! I have always wanted to get it, but really didn't think I would use it a lot. Well, I knew I wanted to dry emboss the entire background of this card, as that is how they did it in the brochure I looked at. So, since the theme was Birthdays, I took advantage and had an excuse to purchase the folder, OH DARN!! HA!

The strip of paper is from Close To My Heart. Perfect colors for what I wanted for the cupcake. 

Simple, but pretty =0)

Now you create a Birthday card or project an d link back to the Challenge Blog for your chance to win an adorable image from Paper Cupcakes!!
