Happy Birthday card for Birthday Sundaes challenge

I'm trying to be more diligent about entering challenges on friends' blogs, so tonight I created this card for the weekly challenge at Birthday Sundaes:

Using my Cricut, I cut the crown shape and accents from the Sweet Treats cartridge and paper pieced the crown together.  After measuring the height of the crown, I cut a piece of purple cardstock that was twice the height and folded it in half.  I adhered the crown to the purple card base and used my X-Acto knife to cut around the crown shape, thereby having the fold of the card at the top.  I stamped "Happy Birthday" across the bottom using words from a birthday phrase stamp set (sorry, but I don't remember who makes it!), added Art Glitter in Cheeky Pink for some shimmer, and then found some pink gemstones in my stash for some added bling.

I've also applied for the new DT at Birthday Sundaes and would be REALLLLLLLY excited if I got chosen!  Kristie isn't going to announce the team until mid-July, though.  Wish me luck!  This card also satisfies one of the monthly card challenges (make a shaped card) in the Yahoo group Scrappin' 'n' Chattin' where I'm a moderator.  I hope everyone had a great Saturday!  Happy scrapping!
