Girly Birthday Card

I'm in the process of making 14 cards for 5th grade students...all for girls except two which need to be "gender neutral" (the hardest kind!).  Obviously, this is not one of the gender neutral designs.  Rather than making 14 different cards, I'll be making 4 and then multiples of those...much easier that way.

I used a pink background for the picture because the card base is actually white...something I rarely use but I really like it with this card.  I had started out with a Lucky Limeade background, but a little Lucky Limeade goes a long way and it was just too much.  I really like how the cupcake icing turned out.  I used the Manhattan Flower embossing folder and I think it looks like swirled icing.  I used my Simply Scored tool to emboss the lines for the cupcake base.

Here's everything I used:
