Happy Birthday Stacey!

At Sweet Stamps, we are creating to wish Stacey (store owner) a Happy Birthday!

 I see these 'thought bubbles' all over, so I used the 'Out of the Box' technique when cutting the oval out- just by snipping a little triangle, then did the same thing with the Kitty's whiskers. I colored the image with Copics- and it is on Cryogen White cardstock, so it has shimmer to it. I distressed the edges, then added some stitching and sponging around the edges.

 Stacey- I hope you have the best Birthday and are spoiled like crazy!!!  Thanks for being so good to your DT- it is a pleasure to design for you!

Hugs and Smiles!
Shelly

Yummy card! Since I started on my weight loss I haven't had much of that kind of food but I do eat it every once and while. Totally adorable card and I'm sure Stacey loved it!

Darling images, Shelly, and I love your coloring! I have a cat who looks hungrily at chocolate cupcakes whenever I indulge. lol Unfortunately for her, I'm inclined to hog them all to myself because they are few and far between at my house. :-D
