A Bright Birthday

I worked on a second card for The Play Date Cafe today.  This one was really out of my comfort zone as it is a one layer card.  When I put all those pink and orange card making mediums in front of me (ink, flock, ribbon, glitter, paper, markers, etc.) it was difficult to know which way to go.  This isn't the path I thought I'd take, but it's where I ended up!  Hope you like it.

The stamps are Hot Off the Press "Magical Birthday" and Close to My Heart "It's Your Birthday".  I embossed the cake and sentiment in white and used the ever popular Ranger Distress Inks in ripe persimmon and worn lipstick.  The cake was "decorated" with crayola glitter glue and pink puff paint.  The ribbons are from my stash.

This card is entered in the following challenge:
The Play Date Cafe: PDCC 128
Hope you have a great day!
