It's Your Birthday!!! Peachy Keen Challenge

Today I have a birthday card for my nephew.  I'm entering a new challenge this week, over at Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge   Thought I'd give this weeks sketch a try. (three times lol finally ended up with this one) 

Here's the sketch they wanted us to follow:

And here's my birthday card

The back ground card stock is from DCWV The glitter Mat Stack.  I used the three colored lines on the right for my 'mock' ribbon.  I used my Artists Loft ink pens to stitch each mock ribbon.  And then stamped "11" for my nephews age this year.

I added "make a big wish" sentiment in silver metallic on the bottom of the card. 

Then a few buttons....sorry, I can't get away from making it a little cutesy lol 

Then I added a Peachy Face to the cupcake...after all, what's a Peachy Challenge without the face, right?!  I used the "wink" face from Everyday Characters

Then the final touch added "It's Your Birthday!!!" sentiment on the cupcake in silver metallic ink. 
And there you have it a Peachy Birthday Card for my nephew, who will probably only care about what's on the inside $$$  -- LOL  that's okay, I enjoyed making it for him. 

Have a great day....until next time, Chao!  --C
