Cupcake birthday card

A birthday card for a little girl who is turning 6!!  I used kits from this class and made a few modifications.  I trimmed the sides off of the label (SX) and used white gros grain ribbon across the middle instead. I simply used double sided tape to adhere the ends to the back of the label. I embossed it with a large dots embossing folder (SU) before adding the ribbon.  I adhered the funky background to a purple card front and then added the label with the ribbon.  I watercoloured the cupcake image (Melonheadz) which I had laser printed and cut with an oval Nestibilities.  I layered it onto a blue oval die cut just a little larger.  I did punch the layer (SU- Modern Label) for my greeting out of the blue oval before I glued them together which ensures they coordinate perfectly.  I used 3D foam tape to adhere my oval focal element over the ribbon on my card front and then glued my little greeting (SU - Word Window) to the punchie and did the same with it.  I added shimmery paint to the pink icing which adds just a bit of sparkle to this cute card.
