Embellished Events Birthday Card

I hope all of you are doing well and enjoying the beautiful warm weather we have been having.  I think the temperature reached 34 degrees today.....thank goodness for cool basements with stamping supplies!

Here is a card I made with a brand new stamp set out of the new 2012-2013 Idea Book & Catalogue.  It is called Embellished Events.  You can find this stamp set on page 40.  This stamp set is right up my alley as it is filled with bold image crisp images.  As you probably already know that bold images is what I use most but perhaps I may need to expand my stamping horizons by also using some detailed stamp sets.  My wishlist keeps on growing every time I open up the new 2012-2013 Idea Book & Catalogue.

This card also features Stampin' Up!'s new 2012-2014 In-Colors....Summer Starfruit, Raspberry Ripple and Primrose Petals.

If you look really closely at the candles you will see I added some Dazzling Details to give them some sparkle.  I also added Pearl Basic Jewels on the Raspbery Ripple layer of the cake.  I love the variety of different Stampin' Up! accessories.
