Polka Dot Birthday

As with the majority of my cards, this one took a life of it's own!! And it kind of makes me giggle too! I went downstairs to stamp, thinking I would like to make a CAS card, today's challenge is to make a birthday card, perfect, I can always use birthday cards!! I was also thinking about yesterday's High Hopes challenge, Crissy wanted us to use polka dots!!! Well that fits in great for a birthday card and what the heck, how about the color challenge on Stamp TV, nothing specific this week, get your color inspiration from flowers blooming in your yard! Initially of course my thoughts went to a cupcake until I ran into this little beauty, Three Candle Cake from High Hopes, perfect!!! And the wheels started turning!! I remembered I had these fun brads that I bought a long time ago but don't seem to have the right card for them very often, same with the ribbon. I wanted to use bright fun colors for the color challenge and took them from the ribbon and brads. And just because it is fun, I added stickles to the candles, Crystal Effects to the chocolate icing and the plate!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
