Girly Birthday Card

I made this girly birthday card with the current sketch from Card Patterns (#137). 
The image is from Paper Cupcakes.  The cupcake holder (is there an official name for those little paper cups?) is paper pieced, and the butterfly and frosting are colored with pencils and OMS.  The nesties are popped up on dimensionls.
There's a row of lace topped by pink rickrack on the top section, and over that a die-cut flower and gem.
All those cool embellies are my recent bargain finds. The ribbon and rickrack is my most recent acquisition -- I bought a box at a yard sale that had more than a dozen unopened packs of rickrack and trim, yards of lace and ribbon, probably a couple dozen buttons and a bunch of embroidered appliques. The price for all this -- $1.00!.  You'll probably be seeing lots of lace and rickrack on upcoming cards.
