Happy Birthday to Lisa with a cherry on top!!

Well, this card is a little late! Her birthday was last week, so I hope she forgives me that it is arriving late! :) Lisa is one of my fabulous club gals and we have so much fun every month! I know she loves sweets, and although I am not sure about ice cream.....this card is just too cute.

The designer paper is retired from last catalog, but goes so well with the cherry in this stamp set. You could use the current Rockability paper for the same effect. Can you believe I sealed the envelope and THEN realized that I forgot to put the glitter on the cherry! The horrors! I had to rip open that envelope and fix my mistake. How could I forget the bling? (that is why your envelope looks chewed on, Lis!)

Here is a close up of the ice cream sundae with the cherry! Sure makes me want to have ice cream!!! Thank goodness the weather is finally cooperating for such a rendevous! I colored and shaded with Bashful Blue.

The greeting that goes with this particular stamp is too darn cute to leave out, but I ran out of room on the front of my card. So - message goes inside! Always a great option when the outside of your card is full of other fabulous things!

Hope you liked my card. Hope you had a great birthday, Lisa!
