Cuttlebug - distress look?

Wow, I hadn't realized how long it's been since I posted.  I've been playing quite a bit with the new cuttlebug folders I got for Christmas.  I haven't created a lot of finished projects with them, but having fun experimenting and seeing what I can do.  I did this one with the cuttlebug birthday folder.  I distressed it with white pigment ink and did the edges with a dark brown marvy ink.  I ran the blue cardstock through the cuttle folder too and cut out some of the words to help pop out the word "Happy Birthday".  The cupcake is done with Martha Stewarts punch/stamp combo.  What cool gadgets she makes!! Love this one.  The candle is just made freehand with a bit of ink.  Did I overdo the distressing?  Distressing is just not my forte!
