Here is a rocking card I made for the hop.
The image from Wee Stamps called Birthday baby boy.

I used copics to color up the image.
The card base is cut with spellbinder grand nestabilities circle die and the oval is decorative ovals also grand nestabilities. In the oval set except for the large die the rest do go in the cuttlebug. I kept the paper with the oval die in a cuttlebug embossing folder and embossed so that just the middle goes through. You do have to be careful while doing this technique as the die gets a bit warped so I would not use the delicate ones but just plain label ones and the plain shape ones for this. I also inked when the paper was inside the die so that just the inside edges get inked..
Added a bit of glossy accents to the cake icing, cherry and the boy's eyes
I have added marianne creatables flowers and swirls - LR0248, LR0249 and LR0250 which I got from http://dutchpapercrafts.blogspot.com/2013/04/marianne-flourishes-and-lifestyle.html. Darlene is such a sweetie and has good rates.

Now for the best part.
I too have a giveaway
It's this lovely spellbinder floral flourish die
