I used the Clear Dollar Stamps Birthday Celebration set to create my birthday card...the cupcake image was stamped with Palette Water Lily Green and the frosting was stamped with Memento Rose Bud. I uses these colors for the candles plus More Mustard. The background paper is from Making Memories called Flutter and sewing was done around the edges. The ribbons and buttons finish it off.
