Young at Heart Birthday Card

Hello everyone!!!  I am so proud of myself for posting this many things so early in the year!  I don't make resolutions because I never stick to them, but I set a sort of personal goal (I guess that's what a resolution is, but hey) to post more often...  So far, so good!  :)  This card is for my friend Sarah.  Her birthday is on Tuesday and we have been joking about her getting old because she's turning 25 (whew, mid-twenties)...  That's why I chose this particular sentiment for the card... Hee hee.... 

The Kraft Journal- anything goes, use kraft cardstock
Simply Crafts- use the heart cupcake from Sweet Treats
Getting Cricky SS Challenge- it's a celebration
Fussy and Fancy- birthday or use animal print (I did both)
If the Shoe Fits- use a hoarded item (my paper pack & my cupcake stamps)
Whimsical Designs- create a border, or use a border punch
Die Cuttin' Divas- use the sketch

A2 sized card
Sweet Treats- cupcake cut at 2.76"
George and Basic Shapes- pink circles cut at .94", black circles cut at 1.22"
My Creative Time Stamps- Wow! So Many Candles
TPC Studio- Hugs and Kisses stamp set (cupcakes)
MS border punch
DCWV Paper Stack- Gone Wild
Twine- pink sorbet
Stickles- star dust
White gel pen
* The black zebra piece measures 4 x 4" and I rounded the corners, the yellow piece measures 1.5 x 4".

As always, thanks for stopping by and taking a peek...  :)

This is ADORABLE!!!! She will love it! And I love how you joke about 25 being old just wait until you get closer to 30, 35, etc. This cupcake is also the EXACT cupcake for a challenge on me and my friends challenge blog. You ABSOLUTELY should link it up there too. IT is:
