Birthday Cupcake

Hi all, I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend, mine was quiet but nice, plenty of time for crafting.  I'm trying to get lots of Christmas cards ready for the Christmas Fair I've managed to get a table at.

This is another card that I made for my son to give to a friend for her birthday, I've never known a boy be invited to so many birthday parties.

Both the image and papers are from The Paper Shelter, I used core'dinations card stock and some flowers from my stash.  The border and corner are both Marianne CreaTables dies.

As usual I decorated the inside of the card to match the front

Image and Papers:  The Paper Shelter - Birthday Cupcake
Embellishments:  flowers from stash
Tools:  Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles, Marianne CreaTables LR0134 and LR0143
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Shopping Our Stash Challenge - No colouring allowed!
