Happy Birthday Pop-up

I wanted to try out the birthday cake pop-up I saw on Leanne Greff's blog.  She has a great tutorial, so hop on over and check it out!  It turned out so cute, and what a neat surprise when you open the card!  I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for the front of my card and incorporated the colors from The Paper Player color challenge.  I added some silver sparkle paper to jazz things up a bit.....all of it coming from my scrap pile.  I love it when that works out!  This card was so much fun to make and I will definately be making more!
Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: Word Play, Curly Cute
Paper: Basic Gray, White, Melon Mambo DP, Lucky Limeade DP, Basic Gray DP, Silver sparkle paper.
Ink: Lucky Limeade & Melon Mambo markers
Accessories: 1/8" satin ribbon, Nestabilites die, regular office punch, Scallop Trim border punch
Thanks for taking a peek!
