I started this card by trimming the top of a piece of pink, floral, patterned paper with a punched strip of Certainly Celery cardstock and the bottom with a punched strip of Certainly Celery cardstock and yellow, decorative, patterned paper; and machine stitching, with yellow-threaded, zig-zag stitches, between the cardstock and pink, floral, patterned paper.  I, then, stamped a strip of Whisper White cardstock, in Pretty in Pink ink, with the starry background from Design Basics: Backgrounds I; adhered it in the center of the pink, floral, patterned paper; distressed its edges with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks; glittered it; and machine stitched, with yellow-threaded, straight stitches, along its top and bottom edges, before adhering the prepped piece to the distressed, with Moonlight White ink, Crumb Cake, cardstock, card face.
The seam binding ribbon was stained with Key Lime Glimmer Mist, crumpled, and set aside to dry, before being wrapped, around the card face, over the stamped, starry portion; tied, in a dressy bow, near the left edge of the card face; and embellished with a yellow button, laced with hemp twine, and a white-embossed, on a hand-cut, vellum banner, "Happy Birthday" sentiment.
I, then, stamped, on a Whisper White, cardstock die-cut, which had been distressed with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks, the cake image in Barely Banana ink; the beaded dots in Pretty in Pink ink; the cake frosting in Regal Rose ink; the candle in Pretty in Pink and Pumpkin Pie inks; and finally, the frame, from Filigreed Frames, in Certainly Celery ink.  A little glitter added to the frosting and it was prepped for dimensionals and adhered just to the right of the embellished, dressy, seam binding bow.
A trio of yellow gemstones...
completes the look.
Further inspiration for this card came from Heather Pulvirenti's Totally Hues: Challenge #7.
I cannot believe that we've reached the end, but I'm so thrilled to see what you all create with this scrumptious set and its coordinating die!  Thanks so much, as always, for stopping by, and please be sure to run check out the rest of the Design Team's fabulous creations.
