AEI♥U Birthday Challenge

Avery Elle has a new Challenge Blog and my good friend Karolyn Loncon is the Design Team Coordinator. YAY Karolyn!! So of course I'm playing along to support her first official AEI♥U Challenge.

The 1st challenge theme is BIRTHDAY.
Are you gonna join the fun with me? If you don't have any Avery Elle stamps (yet) they have some free digi images that you can create with. excuses! lol :)

This is the perfect challenge because I always need more birthday cards. I used 2 Avery Elle stamp sets on my card: Cupcakes and Handwritten Notes.

I spotted this layout in a magazine. Think of all the different tags you can create and plop down on this card!!! Idea overload for sure! You're welcome.
 I stamped with Ranger Distress Inks and did some shading with Spectrum Noir markers. Some glitter on the frosting, a perfect little flower die cut using Avery Elle Cupcakes ELLE-ments die and a candy button finished off my yummy vanilla cupcake.
Have a great weekend,

Some of the supplies used:
Avery Elle - Cupcakes stamp set
Avery Elle - Handwritten Notes stamp set
Avery Elle - Cupcakes ELLE-ments die
MFT - Dainty Doily Duo die
Basic Grey - Candy Buttons
We R Memory Keepers - Hip Hip Horray Ric Rac paper
Ranger - Distress Inks
Tim Holtz Alterations - Tag and Tab die 
Spectrum Noir - GB1, BT1 and the Blender Pen markers

This is SO SWEET! I love the colors and the beautiful fan folded / ruffled paper! The twin is the icing on the cake ;) Beautiful as always.

What a very sweet and nicely layered card. I like the raised doily layered on the card of the same color.
