Embossed birthday card

I'm baaaa-aaacckkkk!!  LOL.  I decided that I have not been using the embossing kit I bought from Amy Chomas enough, so I wanted to make a card with it after she posted one a week or so ago.  Hers was much better than mine, but here is my attempt.  I think I could have done multi cut three times, instead of the two, but it turned out relatively sharp.  I used Create a Critter for the "Happy Birthday" and Gypsy Wanderings for the cupcakes.  I then used a square frame from a random cart, and got them all grouped in the Gypsy, flipped the entire group, and put the foil color side down on the mat.

The background mat is from DCWV Sweet Stack, and the ribbon is random from Michael's.  All of the stamps inside are from SU, and I decided to add some pink stickles under the ribbon and photo corners for the front mat.  I'm hoping to get back to regular paoting, now that the long week of sports tryouts are over!  Thanks for visiting today, and thanks for hanging in there with me while I was MIA and not posting!
