FTL 199 - Happy Birthday, Sherry!!

Good morning, Friends! Home again, home again! Now to get some laundry done, grocery shopping, stamping, sewing... Oh and Nick spent the night at a friend's house and I will need to run them to the rec center in a little while... Then he has soccer camp later tonight... I hope I get a lot done - lol!! We had a great weekend, though! We will be on the road again this weekend. I'm so thankful that we get to to this! It can get tiring but it is so much fun and a great way to spend time together as a family!!

Today's card was inspired by the sketch from Clean&Simple. It was their sketch from last week. Last Wednesday we celebrated our friend's birthday, which is actually today - Happy Birthday, Sherry!!! This is the card that I gave her. I started with a strip of Whisper White that was flagged at the bottom. Then I punched two strips of Midnight Muse with the dotted ribbon scallop punch and adhered them behind the strip. This panel is popped up onto a card base of Whisper White. On scraps of Whisper White I stamped the cupcake bottoms from Create a Cupcake in Midnight Muse and the tops in Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, and Baja Breeze. These were all punched out with the cupcake builder punch. I popped these up onto the card. Then I punched flowers from Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, and Baja Breeze using the itty bitty shapes punch pack. I added a rhinestone to each flower center. I stamped the greeting on a strip of Whisper White in Midnight Muse and flagged both ends before adhering it to the bottom cupcake. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
