Happy Birthday Son

It is our youngest son's 24th birthday birthday.  I spent hours trawling through images on CraftsUPrint before I found this perfect image as my son as he does baking every Saturday.  This little gnome with his beautiful cake is from a kit from CraftsUPrint by Tanya Hall called "Gnome Chef Birthday Mini Kit".  In the kit you get the main topper, insert, decoupage layers and lots and lots of sentiments - certainly amazing value for £1.20.

I was able to match the colours in the topper to backing papers by using my Creative Crafting World Perfect Papercrafting CD".

I have finished the card off quite simply with a sentiment from the kit and some white organza ribbon which I coloured in stripes with Promarkers to match the colours in the toppers and the backing papers.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
