Hey Cupcake Lever Birthday Card

This birthday card is for a little 6 year old: my Grand Niece.  She will love the pink colors as well as the interactive-ness of this lever card from The collection is called "Happy Birthday to You". Original card is much size is taller - I re sized it using my SCAL computer program and cut all the pieces using my Silhouette. Finished card size is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" so it will fit into a A2 envelope. Of course I just had to use the (at one time FREE) "Hey Cupcake" popped up words from My Scrap Chick.  The Pink paper is Core-dinations Lipstick textured paper. Darice Dot Embossing Folder used. SU Contrasting Chocolate Chip used.  My Yellow Bicycle patterned paper is called Cupcakes Galore with Glitter. 
 Here's a close-up: The cupcake icing is Cuttlebug Swirl Embossing Folder with some Stardust Stickles. Cupcake liner is crimped. Add a little pink organdy ribbon and a SU Flower brad for the finishing embellishment.
I love how the words "cupcake" looks on the card bottom:
Here's an over view:
Another view of the card inside:
See the SCAL/Silhouette cut letters using Arial Font. Inside patterned paper is from my supply of paper to  be used.
OMG - NOOOOOOO.................she's not 6, she's 5..............yeeek!!! Corrected the card immediately and made it even cuter with a smaller cupcake .....well, that's because after ripping off the number 6, the paper couldn't take it so I had to cover it up with the smaller to be smaller using SCAL.............thank goodness it worked out fine. Whew..........Yes?
 I know she will love this card........................have fun yourself today.
