Festive 40

There is a lot of teasing about turning 40 so I thought along with the black stripe, I would add a little festive with glitter on this birthday card.
I was inspired by Tuesday Morning Sketches

And this design adapted really well to the challenge from Tuesday Throwdown to use more than one fold.
The cupcake stamp is a really, really old one so I don't know who makes it. I paper pieced the cupcake paper with red stripe from SU. The b&w strip as well as sentiment is also from SU. The 4 & 0 are stickers. I dotted on some red dots with a pen and then covered the icing with glitter glue. The cherry was colored with a water color pen and then Crystal Effects.
While browsing blogs this morning, I found my clean and layered card would also meet the challenge at The Card Concept using cupcakes and  Time Out Challenges for using black and white with a splash of 1 color.
I found the sentiment inside from a Hallmark Cardmaking Program. Of course I had to add a strip of the black here also.
