Bold Birthday......

Hello there, as I am away I will keep those updates somewhat short ish not that my entries are that long but sometimes they are.
Birthdays have an habit to creep up on you so I took 2 hours and challenged myself to make four cards, anyway 3 hours later I made three. This was one of them
This card uses an old favourite of mine, I don't want this set to ever retire. Simple card and this one took me about 20 minutes to pout together after i decided what to do , is the deciding that takes the most time when creating isn't it?
Anyway I have used Soft Suede card and ink for the base of the card and the base of the cupcakes. Then for the frosting I choose bright colours, Real red, tempting Turquoise and it was meant to be daffodil delight but I chose the So Saffron here by mistake ( I have done that last week hope is not getting a habit).

 The colours go together well and it was only when I looked at the bright flower brad that I spotted my mistake, those brads coordinate so well with out inks and our colours as you can see above. They are sweet topped with a rhinestone as well they make quick and sweet accents. You will have noticed my background and might ask yourself where is that flower from? I simply stamped the bow meant to go on the gift stamp twice back to back to get it on my card base.
Thank you so much for visiting see you again soon. Till next time HUGS xxx
