Birthday Card Bash Challenge

I really didn't plan on posting another card so soon but when I read Nichole Heady's blog post today I just could not help myself.  Nichole is the owner of Papertrey Ink, the on-line stamp company that I have been addicted to lately.  Papertrey Ink is celebrating their third birthday with lots of fun challenges and prizes.  Today Nichole introduced us to the 2010 Stamp Designers and offered a fun challenge.  Each member of the design team created a birthday image for us to download.  The challenge----to print and use one of the downloads in a homemade birthday card wishing them a HAPPY BIRTHDAY.  How exciting.  I didn't even eat breakfast.  I quickly visited each designer and picked the download offered by Heather Nichols from Pinefeather Press.  A sweet little cupcake in one of my favorite color combinations--brown and turquoise.
Just by accident when I was trying to size this little image, I discovered that I could print it in graduating sizes in the amount of three--perfect for a third birthday :) 
I then cut the image out using my circle Nestabilities.  The colors in this little image matched perfectly to the patterened paper from another of my favorite company's--October Afternoon.  I added a few more embelishments, ribbon, and stitches and there you have it.....HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY Papertrey Ink!!!!
