Cardz TV 3-D DT Birthday Challenge

Hello my crafty friends!  Today kicks off another Cardz TV Stamps 3-D challenge.  Our challenge is to make a 3-D project for a birthday.  My great-niece recently turned 1 year old, so here's the card I made for her.
I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Make A Wish" for the "Look who's ONE!", and "Good Times" for the "Happy Birthday to YOU.!"  Both of these sets are awesome for birthdays.  The papers are from Recollections.  The Hello Kitty is from an embellishment set I bought at Joanns.  I have the Hello Kitty cartridges, but I saw this fun package and decided to use it.   I cut the 1 out of the Birthday Bash cartridge at 2 inches for the number and shadow.  I used an old balloon punch I've had forever, the presents were punched from a Martha Stewart punch, and for the cupcakes I used the Stampin' Up cupcake builder punch.  I used my favorite EK Success photo corner punch on the corners, and the Artisan punch for the sentiment.

What do you think?  Are you ready to join our challenge?  Just create a 3-D project for a birthday.  You have until  noon EST Thursday March 6, 2014.  Mary is giving away a set of her fabulous stamps to the winner.  Please stop by all of my design team sisters' blogs for more inspiration.  You won't be disappointed!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope to hear from you!  Have a great weekend!

Lots of Hugs,
