Happy Birthday easel card

Hello everyone and an extremely warm welcome to Deb and Carole who are new followers this week. Thank you for your response to my  Inspiration Showcase post and I will certainly repeat these from time to time.

We have had a busy time lately and I can't see much let up for a while because now the warmer weather means that we can at last open windows, I have suggested to my dh that we do some decorating. We need to start with our bedroom which has been in need of a lick of paint for several years and now looks downright dogeared. In spite of seeing mixed reviews on the Internet, I've invested in the Dulux Paint Pod machine which was in a sale and have my fingers crossed that this might make the job a little easier. We are decorating on a strict budget and I want some new pictures to put on the wall so I think I will try some of my own for the first time! Brave hey?

I made this little easel card for the Cute Card Thursday Cakewalk challenge

I used up some scraps of paper and card and cut the scalloped circle on my Cameo. The cake stamp is an old one and I'm not sure where it came from - but it looks yummy to me now that I am heading back to Weight Watchers after putting  some weight back on since I stopped going!

I'd also like to enter this into the Make it Monday anything goes challenge , the Addicted to Stamping birthday challenge and My Clever Creations birthday card challenge

Thanks for looking in and have a great week.
