Colour Q Birthday

I needed a fun birthday card and decided to use Colour Q's colour combo #40 this week. I didn't actually have Barely Banana so I used So Saffron instead. I thought it was a pretty close match.

For the background on the Bermuda Bay I used one of the builder wheels called Birthday and just rolled it over and over again. For the cupcake tree I used bits and pieces from the new Hostess Level 3 set Playful Pieces and the cupcakes themselves are from Itty Bitty Bits. My sentiment came from the set Something Sweet.

This is the first time I have tried ruffling a ribbon this way and I really like how it turned out. It is a fun way to step up a card. I took a needle threaded with Linen Thread and put it through my Melon Mambo ribbon every 1/2", tied a knot at each end and attached it to the card with glue dots. I like it!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
