Beginning of Birthday Season

I suppose this should be a belated Valentine's Day post, but due to the sheer volume of birthday cards that I need to make between February 2 and May 22 I feel the topic is much more appropriate for the upcoming months. (Can't help but slip in DH's Valentine's Day card.)
This totally cute Changito stamped card was created by stamping the image on to vanilla CS with black ink, then watercoloring the images with markers and stamping sentiment on that panel and matted onto river rock. A panel Basic Grey's Infuse paper was pierced then layered to a piece of confetti natural onto red and added to the river rock card base. The river rock stitched ribbon was run beneath the panel supportes by dimensional adhesives and tied. The photo corners were punched out of old olive and copper brads added. Photo corners were attached with dimensional adhesives. All edges were sponged with creamy caramel.
Stamps: Changito Monkey Love Balloon (Stampendous), Cupcake sentiment (Hero Arts - Eclectic Papiere)
Ink: Palette Noir, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa. Real Red

This card was fashioned with some of my fav shimmer cardstock by The Paper Company, which is available through Archiver's. I don't know where else to purchase it.
The card is 4.25 square with a white base, lt. gray shimmer cs and pink shimmer cardstock layered. The shimmer pink layer was heat embossing with silver embossing powder using the SU polka dot background stamp. The sentiment and cupcake are from the Hero Arts set Cupcake designed for Eclectic Papiere. The sentiment were stamped on white CS, punched out using the word window punch, sponged with grapefruit ink and embellished with silver brads added on the ends. Gray taffeta ribbon was layered to the top panel. The cupcake was stamped on white CS, edged sponged with grapefruit and layered to a scalloped circle and attached to the card using dimensionals. The scalloped circle was dotted with a Sakura Stardust pen in silver.
Stamps: Polka Dot (SU), Cupcake (Hero Arts)
Ink: Versamark, Pink Grapefruit (Versamagic), Creamy Caramel, Palette Noir
Paper: Shimmer Pink & Lt. Gray (The Paper Company), White
Accessories: Pearl, Silver Brads, Silver EP, Gray Taffeta Ribbon, Sakura Stardust Pen Silver, Scallop Punch, Circle Punch, Word Window Punch
