Karen Burniston Designer Challenge - Birthday Cake

 It's time for the first Karen Burniston Designer Challenge for 2022.  The theme for this month's challenge is "Birthday Cake" -- make a birthday card featuring a cake or cupcake.  I chose to feature a cupcake from the Cupcake Pop-Up die on the front of my Circle Tag Book, adding Happy Birthday from Word Set 2 - Birthday.

After cutting the polka-dot paper with the outside tag die, I drew a pencil line along the inside of the die and cut off the edge -- thereby making a "matted" piece.  

I cut four cupcakes from the Birthday Charms set for my circle pop-ups.  I added a splash of black to my card to go along with all the pink by cutting black "stripes" and using black ribbon.

I hope you decide to play along with the design team this month.  You always need a birthday card, and cupcakes make it so much fun!
