Cute As a Cupcake!

I wanted to make a birthday card for my granddaughter who will be turning 5 in June. When I came across this image, I thought it would make a perfect card! I wanted it to be bright and cheery. I was looking for a birthday paper but I am a softy for dots. I found the polka dot paper at JoAnn's then found the flower print in my stash. Arlana and I found the Pink and Purple flowers at the Scrapbook USA Expo along with the glittery brads. I added the yellow flowers from my stash. I also used Crystal Effects on the cherries. Arlana, thanks for the fun sketch!
