banner birthday card by lauren bergold

i've said it before, and no doubt i will say it again, but in the meantime here it is now:


partially it's my own STYLE--i mean, heck, my favorite color is hot pink and i've never met a frilly embellishment i didn't love! ;) but also, i just think it's more difficult to make something luscious, textural, and FAB in a masculine style.

...UNLESS... you have the june pixie dust kit, SUMMER OF LOVE, in which case it's a SNAP, see?

first of all there are the amazing sassafras flag banner stickers: you get an entire 12x12 sheet of 'em! then there's pink paislee's "soiree" paper, which adds instant birthday goodness. in this case to my paper-pieced cupcake, the base of which is made from american crafts paper that has a festive "happy birthday" greeting on the tear strip! white lace & buttons might seem feminine... until you realize they will make the perfect whipped cream and cherry for a birthday confection! i misted and sewed my own stenciled star background here, but there are some fun patterns in the kit that'd work equally well.

so what do you think? i say, "mission accomplished!" :)
