'Hatty' Birthday

Hello, hope yorle having a great weekend so far ... it is pretty cool and miserable here in Melbourne so I spent the morning in the craftroom.  
Since I have just spent the last 5 months in NZ (keeping an eye on my mother!) I hardly got to craft at all and I remember as soon as I got there everyone asked if I had any birthday cards in stock .... ah considering I had previously spent the last 6 months wandering the outback on the push bike I didn't get the chance to craft at all!  So I knew that once I got back to Oz I would start stocking up on birthday cards ... thankfully the pile is getting highter so that should satisfy the family.  
This morning I had a ball and really enjoyed making this card and here is the result ...
 following this weeks sketch from Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge blog ...
 drawing inspiration from this months challenge over at Scrapbook Boutique (so loved the hats on the little cupcakes!)
and also following the challenge at Papertake Weekly Challenge blog - A cut above - a lot of fussy cutting and a little die cutting!
materials used - white cardstock; Kaisercraft sunshine cardstock; Echo Park a perfect summer papers; Paper Smooches stamps - Alphadot, green acres, streamers; Versafine onyx black ink; Paper Smooches wise dies borders 1; Prismacolor pencils.
Thanks for looking.

For me I noticed that I need to build my stash of masculine cards... I just need a little more time, too many social and work events on right now lol. Another great card Janet, so glad you could share it with us at Scrapbook Boutique!
