Stamp Something Challenge

Happy Friday! Today is the first challenge of Stamp Something, and the challenge is "Firsts". So I chose to make a 1st Birthday card. Here is my sample:
I started with a kraft base and added a notched-corner striped layer and a dotted layer. I added different colored brads to each corner. I tied an olive ribbon around the car and added two turquoise pieces of ribbon through the knot. The cupcake was stamped in palette noir on a white circle cut with nesties, the holder was pieced, and the frosting was colored using my aquapainter and saffron and marigold inks. It was layered on a kraft mat, also cut with nesties. I attached it to the card front with dimensionals, and added the 1 "candle" and flame. The 1 is from the SU numbers wheel, and the flame is actually a leaf from PTI's Beautiful Blooms. I outlined the 1 with my glitter pen, and put stickles on the flame for a little sparkle. I white embossed the sentiment on pomegranate cs, punched it out with the word window punch, and attached it to the card.
I hope you will find time to play along with us today, make sure to leave a comment and a link so we can check it out! Also, see the samples the rest of the team made. Thanks for stopping by!
