First birthday! Card for Derek

My great nephew celebrated his first birthday yesterday.  I designed this card just for him.  The picture does not show the dotted embossed background on the blue card stock.  I embossed the cupcake with a Sizzix embossing folder and colored it in with Stampin Up chalks.  Gave it some sparkle by highlighting some of the cupcake and candle with my starlight pen.  Added a strip of red ribbon from Michael's at the bottom, attached the stamped "make a wish" verse, and was good to go!  The ribbon and the embossed background gave this card some nice texture.  Just enough sparkle for a boy without going overboard!
