Well we made it through Monday!! The kids and I are all sharing a cold it seems! After all sharing is caring! Am I the only one with Christmas stuff still up? Justin thought I was crazy when I told I waited until Super Bowl Sunday to take it down... THAT is why I have an artificial tree! In all honesty it may be down this weekend...

Of course when I knew that Birthday was the theme I knew I wanted to use my It's My Party DSP! Once I picked the star pattern I took off running! The card base is made using Stampin' Up! Melon Mambo card stock with a Basic Black matte. The tag is something I had in my stash... The stamp is from Unity Stamp Company. It is called "Damn You're Old"!! Now you can stop laughing! There are those friends and or relatives that deserve a card like this! If you know me.... I am one of those friends! I stamped this in our Basic Black Archival Ink and colored it in with our Melon Mambo, Basic Black, and Daffodil Delight markers. I even used a little Gold Wink Of Stella on the flames! I die cut the cake and the black circle behind it using the Circle Framelits. The sentiment was stamped using Versamark ink with the White Stampin' Emboss Powder. I actually made this little banner myself using the Banner Triple punch and a Fiskars Spring Hammer Punch. I tied this to the tag with Mint Macaron and Black Bakers twine and adhered it with a Stampin' Dimensional. I also adhered the circles with Dimensionals. Now what is a Birthday with out a little confetti?! Well my enamel dots are my "confetti" and finished off this card just right!
I hope you love my cake!
Happy Birthday Card Making!!
