Happy Birthday for PP311 and tgifc71

I wanted to play a challenge today so I went trolling for a couple.  Success!  I decided to play along with the Paper Players Theme Challenge and the TGIF color challenge.  I needed a birthday card so that's the direction I went.  Take a look at today's card:

Here are the challenges that inspired me:

Now for the details:

  • I decided a Bokeh card would be perfect for the circle challenge.  I love the way it turned out with the color combo from TGIF!
  • The cute little birthday cake is from the stamp set Endless Wishes.  
  • For a little bling, I used some of the Sweet Sugarplum Ribbon from the Glitter Ribbon Combo Pack.  I unraveled the ribbon and tucked it behind the cute cake.
Can't wait to put this beauty in the mail!

Happy stampin',
