Mo's Challenge #156

'B' is for.........

Mo's Challenge this week is anything that begins with 'B', so it's pretty much 
wide open to interpretation!
 I've chosen 'Birthday' as the theme for my card.

 I just love this image! It's cute and so much fun to color!
 I found a pink button in my stash that reminds me of  frosting on a cupcake, so I had to use it along with some scraps of Basic Grey DP! I think the card looks like a confection with all the pastels and frill!

Papers: SU! Mint, Coral, and Pink, Neenah white, Basic Grey DP

'B' is also for basket, and this little cutie is holding one as she walks down the aisle.
