I made this for my daughter that turned two yesterday! I waited till the last minute to make it ... sometimes I think my cards turn out better when I do that (only sometimes, not all the time). LOL!

I used my new SAB stamp set (which helped out a lot, because I don't have very many birthday sets) and some new ribbon.

For the color combo, I grabbed my Color Coach (SU! Color Wheel) again! I love that thing! I actually had planned on using Pretty in Pink for the base, but I guess I had forgot that by the time I got out all my colors because it turned into Mellow Moss (so if you're looking for this color combo turn your "pointer" to Pretty in Pink and it's all the Coordinating colors) LOL. Instead of starting with the base first, I actually started with the main image (focal image) this time. I stamped the cake in Perfect Plum onto Very Vanilla and matted it with Mellow Moss and Perfect Plum. Then I stamped my polka dot background in Mellow Moss and covered the whole card front. I tied some Mellow Moss Taffeta Ribbon around a So Saffron piece of CS and adhered it to the card. I then added my focal image with dimensionals and stamped the "happy birthday" in Perfect Plum. And there you have it...my daughters birthday card.

Supplies: All supplies from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
Stamps: Birthday Whimsy (SAB) and Polka Dot Background
Paper: Mellow Moss (5 1/2 x 4 1/4-finished size; 2 5/8 x 2 3/8), So Saffron (2" x 5 1/2"), Perfect Plum (2 3/4 x 2 1/2) and Very Vanilla (2 1/2 x 2 1/4).
Ink: Mellow Moss and Perfect Plum
Accessories: Dimensionals and Mellow Moss Taffeta Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by!
