Celebrate!

I was in a happy mood yesterday so I made a birthday card! I had this patterned paper for a very long time, and even though I like its bright and party colors, I´ve never put myself to use it, but not anymore!
I used this cute cupcake, with Ratiny peeking from behind, Elizabeth so generously gave as a freebie in her blog(Softpencil).
I colored it with colored pencils, added some glitter on the little hearts and rubbed with my finger some body shimmer dust on the icing to make it shine, and place the image with foam tape. Because it was so long since I participated at Aly´s Sunday challenge blog I added some faux stitching to enter this card on the contest.
As an embellishment I put on a piece of foam tape a sticker I also had for a long time (don´t ask me why I didn´t use it yet... shame on me...) the previously put it on a scrap of cardstock and cut around. Added also a white cord that I tried to make it looks naturally curled, I´m not sure if it looks like I wanted but I´m pleased with the final result.
I´m entering this at Cupcake Craft challenge blog also where we have to use something sparkly on our project.
I think the card looks better that in my pictures, it was a rainy day today so not much daylight available, if I can make a better picture when we have sunshine I´ll update it.
