Colorful Birthday

Roxie here and I had fun creating this happy card, I like the open letters of the sentiment so it can be colored in.

The cupcake paper is a solid image on the clear stamp so to get an outline I inked up the top of the image with an ink pad and used a wet wipe to remove the unwanted ink but also took advantage of the ink to use as a shadow.  I used a marker to outline the solid image so I could color it in.

The balloons, cupcake and sentiment are popped up with foam tape.
