Happy Birthday Paper Sweeties!!!

Paper Sweeties is celebrating their 3rd birthday 
this month and part of the celebration includes a challenge..... Paper Sweeties 
Inspiration Challenge #34 - Happy Birthday!
I was inspired by everything in their inspiration photo....colors, cupcakes, and flowers.
Here is the card I made...


The background was made by running a piece of waxed paper through an embossing folder, then ironing it on a piece of cardstock.  That creates a resist effect.  Then I inked over it with Distress ink.  The waxed resist area shows through.  It's a fun technique.  The cupcake is from Cricut CTMH Artiste cartridge and was colored with Spectrum Noir and accented with Stickles.  This card is sweet and simple, but I think the doily and the ribbon add a touch of elegance.

Here is the inspiration photo
