never ending boys birthday card

Hi thanks for stopping by today. I thought I would get in early for my sons birthday with this never ending card. I was looking through my drawers yesterday and found all sorts of goodies that I haven't used in a LONG time.....including my poor neglected prisma pencils :0( I found I have a huge variety of micro beads- some date back to when I was in school some 18 years ago! For this card I have used many applications- black embossed balloons, dimensional magic, liquid pearls, micro beads, sparkly fluff, glamour dust , and for the large cupcake I run some scrap cardstock through a crimping machine using my round spellbinder nestie for the top icing part and cherry. I hope he likes it...as a rule of thumb he likes anything he can fiddle with so this card will be sure to keep him busy. I have used various sets of stamps- inkadinkado- birthday sentiments; craft affair's- "Life is sweet" and "Love bug" (from the love bug set, I cut the "love bug" wording from a frame and just used the circular scallop frame). I also used a little "happy birthday" stamp from a popcorn the bear set- I have cut all these up and mounted them, so dont know what belongs to what set :0(. The design paper is an "adorn it" page called "vintage Market".

Thanks for stopping by XOX Tania
