Look @ Me being Girly!

Hi all! For today's card I really went out of my comfort zone. I combined Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #17 with Sweet Stampin Challenge #41.Stampin' Celebration's Challenge was to make a very girly birthday card with pink & white cupcakes. I may have gone a little overboard on the pink! Sweet Stampin Challenge was to create a distressed birthday card. My husband, being the wise mouth he is, thought that the card needed to show stress about the birthday. Ha Ha Ha. I had to educate him. My distressing on this card is pretty subtle. I took my fingernail and roughed up the edges of the mats and turned down the right hand corner. I used 2 different stamp sets, Cute by the Inch and A Word for You. The patterned paper is Blushing Bride from the Level 1 hostess paper pack.
The mats are done in Regal Rose while the card base and paper ribbon are Pretty in Pink. I used Rose Red to stamp the image of the cupcake. I think I have used enough pink on this card to last me for awhile.
