My Granddaughter turns 7 next week but I am giving her present to her because we are in Salt Lake now which means that we won't be returning next week for her actual birthday.  Katie is very artistic and loves receiving cards that are homemade.  I bought the set Sweet Stuff with Katie in mind.

Purple is her favorite color so I knew that I had to work it in to my design.  Thankfully Sweet Taffy had the perfect piece for my card.  A Whisper White card base makes an ideal backdrop for the paper from Sweet Taffy.  In addition to the "purple"  side, I also used a narrower strip of the reverse side for some contrast.

The images were stamped with Memento Black Ink.  Carefully, I used my Stampin' Write Markers to add color to them.  They were then punched out with different size circle punches.  The sentiment is flag cut on the right side while a little piece of Rich razzleberry cardstock draws attention to the left side of the banner.

A Daffodil Delight Blendabilitywas used to color the Rhinestones that you see on the candles & the cupcake.
