Celebrate in Style!

I have another Less is More card today...this one's a little different from my first one...but the embossing element is similar. I used the dotty border folder from my Cuttlebug 'Just My Type' set along the bottom edge of the card, then scored two horizontal lines above, stamping a sentiment from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts in between them. The image is 'Birthday Cupcake'...which I coloured using watercolour pencils, then added a touch of sparkle to the icing with some Stickles. The number stamps are from the 'Whimsical Months' set by Hero Arts...and in case you're wondering about the number, this card is for one of my flatmates, who is 30 today.
