Happy Birthday to You!

Happy Birthday to you!  This card is for you!  I know I have missed lots of birthdays, so consider this your card from me!  I had a lot of fun making it.  The background stamp of the shaker is Hero Arts Birthday Blackboard K5872 which I inked with a beautiful Clearsnap orchid pigment ink.  I then assembled the shaker using my Paper Trey Ink Shakers and Sprinkles kit, using some Valentine heart sequins for the shaker element.  I also have made this card with shaker silver sequin stars, which I like even better.  The stamped cupcake is also Hero Arts, which I "iced" with my new white Wink of Stella glitter pen.  I added pink glitter glue and some rhinestones and beads to decorate the cupcake.  I think this card looks good enough to eat!

  1. Hi Jane! I am so happy to see that you are back in the blogosphere! I have been thinking of you lately and wondering how you are doing. I love this birthday card! First, the colors speak to me. I am partial to the pink/black combo. Also, I love the chalkboard look, and it is nice to see it done in an "other than black" fashion. Finally, I LOVE cupcakes! Oh, and the shaker thing is awesome too. P.S. I dusted off my blog earlier this year and have posted most of Tim's "Tags of the Month." Check it out if you have a chance: Take care!
