Got Cake?!

I have a whole bunch o birthdays coming up so I am gearing up by getting to my card makin early.
I created the back ground by sponging on chalk in a dark purple, deep blue & medium pink & swirling & blending all together. The DP & "Got Cake" sticker is from an Imaninesce pack "All Kinds of Happy". The flowers are from Close to My Heart- they were white & I colored them by sponging on ink: Gypsy, CTMH & Almost Amethyst, SU. Sparkly flowers are ?- they were in my hoarders supply drawer & the pearls are Recollections from Michaels. The sweet lil gal is Gabrielle from Kraftin Kimmies Stamps. I used a few different medium for coloring her in... I used a blender pen w/ chalks for her dress & tea cup/saucer, an old zig pen meant for shading black & white photos (I found when I was cleaning out some of my stuff) to color her skin, a blender pen dipped in Ranger ind distressing ink for her hair (Vintage Photo & Fired Brick) & a pencil to give a little pink to her cheeks.
