Birthday Calories Don't Count

When I made this card, I wanted to use the striped decorative paper so I designed the card around that. The harlequin stamp I used for the background is one of my favorites and it was discontinued my Hero Arts! I couldn't believe it when I saw the new catalogue :( But I will continue to use it, somethings you just can't give up. So enough with my whining. I stamped the harlequin with versamark. The shadow stamp (also discontinued) was stamped with lettuce and the sentiment over stamped with currant. The cupcake was stamped with black and colored with watercolor pencils and I dusted off my corner rounder for the two corners. After I put the card together, I put the circle stickers towards the bottom, this wasn't planned but worked out great!

The sun is finally out today and it should reach the high 50's. It is beautiful out but it won't last long, the rain will be back this weekend. We have year round school here and my son will be off track for the month of February, Friday is his last day, I'm hoping for nice weather so he won't be couped up in the house. I hope the weather is nice where you are :)

Woman, I just want the cupcake. [And don't even get Veronica started on that subject.] Great card -- I have to be careful what I show my niece, cuz if it's too realistic she starts saying 'where's mine?' And being a doting Aunt, that means getting out the goods and making cupcakes. (shhhhhhh)(not today!)

That is too cute. Oh Toni is making fun of me because I just have to have ONE Sprinkles cupcake before I die. I have heard so much about them and she has one right in her home town and hasn't sent me one..yet!!!!!

Jamie, the little stickers at the bottom were the perfect finishing touch! Also, in looking at your other cards, you are a master with the WC pencils! I use mine all the time also, but not with your skill!
