Waltzingmouse Stamps August Blog Party

It's the 17th of the month and time for Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party.  It's very appropriate that it is called a party because this month, the theme is Birthdays!  Gotta have a party on your birthday, right?  Waltzingmouse stamps has lots of stamp sets that work with the birthday theme.  So many, in fact that I ended up narrowing mine down to three stamp sets.  Here  is my card:
The first thing that popped into my mind was Eat Cake.  I love stamping that cute layered cake in a creamy ivory icing using AMuse Latte ink.  Since I have never used my new Playful Pinwheels set, I decided to add a pinwheel instead of a birthday candle.  The sentiment is also from Playful Pinwheels.  I also have never used my Heirloom Patterns set, so I stamped a cute lined background with the stripe and dot image using Mango Fresh Ink.  It is a perfect match for PTI Summer Sunrise.  The patterned papers are from PTI pattern paper packs.  The little flowers were punched with a teeny, tiny punch and I used a stylus to round them out a bit.  Make sure to check out all the great birthday themed cards over on the Waltzingmouse Blog.  Why not enter a card yourself...great opportunity to win a free stamp set!  Just follow this link.
