Birthday Cupcake

This is a card that I started a few days ago and I finished it yesterday as part of some stamping therapy to get my mind off things. Also, my daughter needed it today for a birthday party she was attending for one of the little girls in her class at school.

I saw the idea for this card on Amy Sheffer's blog, Pickled Paper Designs. I saw her card a while back and thought it was just adorable, and I knew I wanted to do a variation on it. Such a fun design for a child's birthday card, I think. Amy does such beautiful work, her blog is one of my daily visits (...or whenever she updates) and I always love to see what's she's up to. Check out her work if you haven't yet, you'll be glad you did!

Well, today has been a tiring one, so I'm gonna call it a day. Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Julie, I love how your card turned out and am so flattered by your CASE - thanks!!! The colors are so fun, and that doodling just adds so much. I've never been here before, so I looked around a little (great work you do, by the way), and just wanted to tell you how sorry I am for the loss of your friend.
