Birthday Humor Sparkles!

Birthday cards always seem to be in short supply in my stash, so I decided to use the new birthday releases from DRS to replenish my supply. DRS has a great group of birthday images and a wonderful variety of birthday sentiments , too -- funny, serious, and everything in between!

For those recipients who appreciate a little humor, this card that seems like any other birthday card until you read the sentiment:

Stamps: Girly Swirly Cake, Girly Swirly Flowers, So Many Candles sentiment. Cardstock: River Rock, Almost Amethyst, Purely Pomegranate, GP110 white. Ink: Memento,Copics, Purely Pomegranate, Almost Amethyst. Accessories: Circle and Long Rectangle Nestabilities, Double-stitched Pomegranate ribbon, slot punch.

For a little extra sparkle, I used 'Candlelight' Shimmerz around the candles for a glowing effect:

For the next card, the sparkle on the cupcake is from chunky glitter. I also paper-pieced the cupcake wrapper with pieced of coordinating paper stamped with the same Interlocking Flower Background used on the red panel:

Stamps: Cherry Top Cupcake, Giga Birthday Circle, Interlocking Flower Background, All About You Birthday Sentiment. Cardstock: Real Red, Ballet Blue, GP110 white. Ink: Memento, Real Red, Craft white, Versamark, Copics. Accessories: chunky clear glitter, red gingham ribbon, Giga Circle Punch, white detail EP.

Have fun creating a birthday card that will bring a smile to any face!
