Fresh and Fruity Birthday!

I started out to make a birthday card for one of the RAK groups I belong to, and along the way turned this mission into one for using something new that I received for a gift. My DD gifted me with a complete set of papers, embellishment, ribbons, and doo dads from KI Memories, called Juicy Summer. There are so many adorable elements in this group that I didn't know where to start. There are even chipboard words! My image is a digi cupcake that I have had for a long time. I am unsure of the creator but they have the faint initials ES next to them. There are other cuppies in the set. My coloring was done with Copics. I added tiny green gems from Amuse stamps and Paper Glaze to the yummy fruit. The card base is Grass Green Pure Luxury card stock from Gina K. Designs.

Since I have used all new materials that were a gift, I would like to enter this card over at Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge # 36. This week we are suppose to use something NEW!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful winter day! Hope you won part of the Mega Millions payout! LOL....
