2 Cards for 2 Challenges Part 2!!!!

Hello again.. this is a quick one since it's a second post...
Here is the second card I made....

Card stock, Ink - Stampin' Up
Designer Paper is From the Yummy Imagine Art Cartridge
Cartridges - (Banner) April Showers Cut @ 2"
(Top Banner Layer green & Name) was welded together
in my gypsy using the April Shower & Lyrical letters (jumbo font)
The letters are @ 3/4"
I used 2 silver brads from my stash to look like it's nailed in the wall
I used a white signo gel pen for the faux stitching around the banner
The Numbers (16) are from the Sweet Treats Cartridge Cut @ 2 1/4" (2x's)
I also used Glossy Accents on my sons name... you may not be able
to see the shine but it's there! :o)

The Inside Cupcake was cut from the Yummy Imagine Art Cartridge
The Cupcake was Cut @ 3 1/2" from the first Image in the book, then
The Cupcake wrapper was Cut @ 4" from the 2nd Image in the book....
I wanted it to have more blue colors than pink.... :o)
The inside came from my Hallmark Program and I
used the RGB Codes from a Stampin' Up color for the colors
in the sentiment...

I cut the cupcake out twice and popped it up....
I also used some Glossy accents on the Cherry and
the Darker Chocolate top layer......

Here is just a side view showing the #16 Candles being popped up!
I also used some Yellow Stickles for the candle...
Just around the border to give it a little flame spark! :o)

I'm putting this in the Challenge over at:
Birthday Sundaes - Using an Inspirational Photo
Here's the photo:

My inspiration came from just using the cupcakes and the
Color blue in my card..... You are suppose to have a sentiment
on your card as well... but because this is clearly made as
a 16th Birthday card I thought it would still apply!
Or at least I hope so! :o) Anyway that's my
2 cards for 2 Challenges.... I hope you guys like them!
I thought they came out great and so did my son
who has them displaying in his room!
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!

This is super - inside and out! The banner looks amazing and your papers are just perfect! I ended up selling my Sweet Treats cartridge as I never opened it - but I'm kicking myself now as I LOVE those candle numbers!
