happy birthday dude

today i have a FUN card to share! i made it this morning (in literally like 15 minutes! in between making the little menn their breakfast and them eating it!)! i had to make a card for my brother and get it in the mail today...although, even then, i know it will be cutting it...close. oh well!
i used two challenges for inspiration: little tangles (birthday challenge!!) and runway inspired challenge photo.

both are super FUN! and both were perfect together for a boy-y birthday card!
here's my card:

first i laid some funky traingle washi down in uneven strips. i'm loving triangles and bold right now. so it called to me! :) and i like how it reflected the pattern going on in the dress in the photo, too! then, i paper pieced the cupcake (of course adding that little smirk!), then popped it up for dimension! i LOVE that cupcake image from sketchy cupcakes! then i added lots of arrows from studio calico's hearts and arrows wood veneers. and finished it off with some fun yellow enamel dots! :) 

it screams FUN! 
oh, and you can't see, but in the inside of the card, i stamped the happy birthday case that wasn't coming through clear enough. ha ha! :)
