Sweet Birthday Wishes

I'm really enjoying doing these types of cards where its all the background that is stamped and coloured and only using a sentiment on the front. These stamps all come from one set I saw Therese using and they cried out to me buy me buy me so I did. They're small stamps but not too small and I have done another card with just the macaroons and they are perfect size.

Check out the Sparkle on the paddle pops  (3 colour ice-creams)with the little sprinkles that have been coloured with Metallic Gel pen, and Wink of Stella (rejuvenated and wow does it sparkle now) added to the icing on the cupcakes and the layered black die cut. 

All the colouring was done with Copics and when I layered the die cut I went black, white, black just to see what it looked like. Finished off with Birthday wishes inside the card.
