Happy Birthday, Cupcake for {PP #132}

Hi everyone! This week at the Paper Players, the fabulous Ann Schach has a color trio for us to try out. Summer Starfruit has quickly become a favorite color for me, so I couldn't wait to create my card. 
I have also been wanting to play along over at the new "Seize the Birthday" challenge. I was inspired by the sketch and the fun birthday theme. This week the theme is to create "feminine cards" and what gal doesn't like cupcakes? 
Ok, I do know I have been a little "bling happy" with the past couple of cards I have made. I'm going to try to lay off the sparkle for a while after this card. Ha..the key word there is "try". One thing I love about this color combo is that the Patio Party DSP (Designer Series Paper) in the current SU catty has these colors combined already, so that was what I decided to use for my card. I added some fun texture, a banner sentiment and some sparkle to finished everything off. The sentiment is stamped on vellum, too. All of the supplies I used are listed at the end of the post. 
I hope you will join us over at the Paper Players this week The challenge is open through Friday, February 15th at Noon (PDT). Please stop by and visit the rest of the Design Team to see what they have whipped up with these pretty colors:
