Happy Birthday Challenge

Hello my friends!  It is time for another IO challenge, and this time the theme is birthdays.  It is a great challenge idea because I think I make more birthday cards than anything else.

For my card, I wanted to use a couple of the new Zenspiration line of stamps.  I combined a border from a clear set (CL534 Border Lines) with images from a birthday set (CL533 Birthday) and then colored everything with Prismacolor pencils.  I chose colors with the recipient in mind, but you could just as easily use a different combination or even black and white if you wanted it to look more like Zentangle.  To finish the card, I added some pearls and some stickles to the frosting on the cupcake.

Need more birthday inspiration? Check out what the other designers have created:
