Happy Birthday Austin

Hi everyone,
So glad you stopped back. Here we are on day 22. I'm now at challenge card 23 and card 27 for the year. I'll probably post twice today, because I need to get this one posted before the challenge closes and it's Sunday, that means football. I hate football so I go off and stamp while it's on. This flue bug is starting to go away now. I am functioning a little better. Today I'm working with 2 challenges. ColorQ and Try stamping on Tuesday.
ColorQ was the hardest color combo I have ever worked with. In the picture of my card, you really can't see the different s between  Bravo Burgundy and Rich Razzleberry. but I did use all the colors.

And here's Try Stamping on Tuesday. What a great sketch. I will no doubt use this one again. 

I need a birthday card for my oldest grandson. I thought these colors would work good on a child's card.
Most of my supplies are Stampin Up. I used the Bravo Burgundy for my cupcake. I thought it kind of looked like Red Velvet Cake. I did have to add a little Daffodil Delight. I just had to light up the candles. Oh and when I ice a cake I always swirl the frosting, so I used the Cuddlebug Swirl folder to give it that look.

I hope you like my card. Be sure to stop back.
