Happy Birthday Suzy Q - And something new!

It's my dog walking mate and fabulicious friend Suzy Q's birthday today...her last in her 3rd decade...makes me feel old hmph!
I've been harbouring a couple of new DIGI'S for a while and thought I'd make a card for her using one of them. Not even the Ladybugs have seen this so I might get into a bit of trouble lol.
Anywho, here is Magnum & Lily  - Cupcake Surprise...I totally love this image and hope you do too...

What do you think? Totally unisex me thinks so really you're getting two for one :-D. Lily cracks me up...she is ALWAYS getting the upper hand with Magnum although she really does love him....really! I printed the image onto PTI cs and coloured it in with my Copics. The pp is from my MME 6 x 6 Lime Twist Life Of The Party (how appropriate lol) paper pad which I cut and stitched to Bazzill cs. I used one of my MS punches for the border. I used Fluffy Stuff on the frosting adding some of my snow glitter before I fluffed it with my heat gun. I added some GD to Lily's party hat and candle flames and GA to Magnum's nose along with some dots to his party hat using my gel pen.

Is Magnum surprised or what lol

Lily seems oblivious to Magnum...

This pussy cat is not happy!

I loved making the circle sentiment and added a felt flower and button to the centre.

I've started adding leaves along with my rolled flowers and what a difference they make...I love this one with the cut out bits. I crumpled up the flower die cut before I rolled it ... it kind of gives it a worn distressed look ... and added a tiny button to the centre to finish it off.

And there you have it...Cupcake Surprise. I would love to know what you think of the newest addition to  theMagnum & Lily line so please let me know :-D

I would like to enter Susan's card in the following Challenges:

MAWTT - Food & Drink
