Summer Birthday with Penny Black

Lots of challenges caught my eye this week and I always find it difficult to choose which ones to enter. I had a list of over 20  I liked so set about making sure I had everything I needed to cover them all.
 The first two that caught my eye were moving along with the times who have a challenge to show your favourite things on your card and who want you to make a birthday card for yourself . My favourite things are:- I love a birthday party, friends and cupcakes. I would love to get this card myself.

The pink elephant  has an inspiration photo of cupcakes pictured above. I used my Penny Black image which includes a cupcake and used shades of pink from the inspiration  photo.

The Shabby tea room has an inspiration photo of a bracelet ( below) so I used the pink, green and gold  colours taken from that and added a  required charm.
Crafty catz , / a spoonfull of sugar and bearly mine are looking for tags.
Daring cardmakers are asking for the use of an inspirational photo from Pinterest and I found this cute cupcake photo ( below) on there to use for my inspiration.

Listed here are all other challenges I entered :-                          Use bling                         Colouring                                      Anything goes linky party                                Pink yellow and green                                       Sparkle and shine                    Animals and use a punch ( leaf punch)                    Flowers        use some text                              Anything                               use metal (brads)                                  Cute                                  Animal antics                       Use pastel colours                                    Anything goes                  Anything goes
