A Quick and Simple birthday card

Hi everyone,

Morgan has been sick today :(  He is getting about 5 teeth through at the same time and it's made him feel sick :(
Bad for him but for me... He slept till 10.30 and then woke for a hour and slept for another hour or so!  He woke up feeling better and is back to normal now, phew!
While he was sleeping I thought i'd make a card.  I wanted to do a quick one as I didn't know how long he'd sleep for and well it would of been quick but then I decided to do the laundry and dishes aswell and then Morgan did wake.  I finished this off while he was eating so it took longer than I thought!  Morgan is napping again so I have time to post this :)

I wanted to do a long purple card and I had to use pink too!  I looked at the bare card and thought the Ms heart punch would look nice (when closed you can see a little bit of the inside dp which is the same as the outside).  I really like the dp which was in my bag of dps from Lisa.  I wanted to use a small simple image and these cupcakes are part of a sentiment stamp so I stamped these and cut the scallop circle with my cuttlebug.  Behind the cupcakes is a bit of Ribbon and the sentiment is stamped and then I clear embossed over it which took ages as my black ink wouldn't stamp right!  I did want to add a flower but it just looked weird.
I am pleased with this and would happily give this to someone.  It is my cousins birthday at the end of March so maybe her...
I have followed the sketch at Ics.  I hope my version is acceptable!
I'd like to enter this for the following challenges too
Simon Says - Girly
Totally papercrafts - Special Lady (I hope my card is ok for this?)

I'm not sure if i'll craft again before Saturday because I have lots of amazing birthday packages to open on my birthday from the RAK club I am in AND I have ordered a new paper trimmer!!  I did order the purple cow ultimate Trimmer II (I think it was) weeks ago but the place didn't have it in stock so I was going to wait and then they said they won't have it in stock till April! APRIL!? I was not waiting that long so I got my refund yesterday and have ordered this one(has anyone tried this?) and I also ordered the extra blades and what's good is that it all came to about £6 or £7 less than the purple cow one so I got a cuttlebug folder and A Diamond Stickles (I've always wanted to see what these are like!).  Watch this all be out of stock now, haha!  I hope I get it before my birthday but I don't think I will as I choose the free delivery.  I don't mind, it'll be worth the wait :)

Don't forget to enter my candy too!  I can't believe how many entries I have!!!
