I had some serious fun experimenting with this card. First of all, I didn't have those really cool swishes from the Extreme Elements stamp set. I used My Digital Studio to print them in Pacific Point on my Whisper White cardstock with a gray shadow behind them. Now, to dress them up a little.
How about the Party Hearty cupcake with a darker blue on the frosting? Sure, that works. Oh, we need to pop that a little, right? So, let's dab on some really cool Frost White Shimmer Paint from the Holiday Mini Catalog.
Well, what are we going to do with the greeting? I know! Let's use Teeny Tiny Wishes and the Word Window Punch. What??? That's not done yet? Ok, we'll pop out a couple of sizes of ovals and use the cool shimmer paint on the smaller oval. Now, a little bit of Itty Bitty Backgrounds and we're done! Oh, don't forget to put a bit of shimmer paint on the edges of the lighter blue (Ballet) cardstock. Ok, now we're done. This should be ok for a 13 yr old boy.
