Happy Birthday, Louise!

I think I'm pretty safe posting this card...I made this birthday card for my friend, Louise, but I don't think she's on her computer often checking out blogs.  Apparently, she's not addicted like the rest of us!  Anyway, I don't think she'll see it before I give it to her tomorrow.  lol  :)

I had a lot of fun distressing all the elements on this card.  I made the Happy Birthday frame by using a grunge oval frame digi stamp that I got from The Graphics Fairy.  It was originally designed as a blog header, but I re-sized it in PhotoShop and inserted the text using a couple of different fonts for a nice little framed sentiment.   The elegant cupcake is from a logo from Icing on The Cake.  I know I'm probably not supposed to use this, but I'm not selling this card, it's just a gift, so there's no profit being made from this beautiful logo.

I'm working on a project tonight, so I should be able to share that with you soon.  Stay tuned...

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
