A Birthday Card with Hello Kitty

Good evening peeps! I've been pretty lax this past week in posting so I thought I had better make some type of appearance soon before you all forget me! Welcome new followers! I can't believe I am up to 40 already! Just love it! Thank you also for the great comments, I really do read them and appreciate them. Today I finally managed to clear my home of the last of the Christmas decorations.The house looks & feels so bare now. With that week long chore complete I can get back into the swing of things. Thank goodness for birthdays or I would be without something to show you!
You all know I love round cards so I just had to make one for Arielle. She loves Hello Kitty so the theme was a no-brainer.
I cut the scalloped card from Wild Card Cart using the" fit to page" feature on my Cricut Expression. The top (purple) layer was a freehand shape rescued from an error I made...oops! The border was punched using a Martha Stewart Hearts Border punch. Kitty's soft fur was made by running the pieces through my Xyron and then covering the adhesive using Cotton Ball White Fun Flock. I was unable to find Hello Kitty with a cupcake so I had to add that on, but it was taken from the Hello Kitty Cart. The cupcake holder was scored to give it is pleated appearance, The frosting was made using my favorite Goldens Medium and the cherry was made using Stickles. If I were to remake this card I would definitely use narrower ribbon for her bow or perhaps just use the paper version. It is difficult to see in the picture but a white heart button is sewn in the middle.The bling was adhered using my Irock for the very first time! The paper was from DCWV, the flowers were Prima. "Hey Cupcake" was stamped from Scrappy Moms "Sweet Somethings" set. I love those stamps! As a matter of fact I love them so much that I ordered a duplicate set so guess what part of my blog candy will be for Debbies Birthday Blog Hop on January 24th-28th? I think you may have the answer or part of it anyhow! Guess you will just have to stop by & see!
