Peachy Keen Post Day - Birthday Cupcake!

Good morning! It's my day to post on the Peachy Keen blog, and since today is my daughter Katie's 9th birthday (YIKES! Where does the time GO?!?!?) - I thought I would share a birthday card. When I finished this, I thought it might look just a little too crazy - there is a lot going on! But...that makes it more fun for a kids birthday card, right? 
Here are all the Peachy Goodies I used on my card:

I started off by cutting out my cupcake using my Silhouette Cameo machine, some Lily Bee Designs paper, and THIS file from the Silhouette store. I inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink, and then added my Peachy face, using a Copic marker for the cheeks, and a white gel pen for the eyes and freckles. 
The background is kraft paper that I ran through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder. I hand trimmed the banners that the sentiments are on, and attached them with foam adhesive in the centers, and an ATG gun on the sides, so that they have some dimension. 
Rounded off one corner, and added some red bling randomly on the background. 
And then put my cupcake on an Action Wobble! This SOOO seriously ups the cuteness factor of any card! I think it makes any card so much fun! If you haven't tried them - you really should give them a try! Here are a couple photos of it in action:

Finished off with a banner on the bottom using some of the papers from the same paper pad, and a Fiskars punch. Attached them to the card, and ran some twine along the top. And...just because it seemed like "something" was missing, I added a bit of musical note ribbon from Ribbon carousel along the bottom. 
I'm so glad you stopped by today! Would love to hear what you think...does this card have too much going on, or is it okay?
