Happy Birthday - TECC49

Happy 2009! I hope you all are enjoying the beginning of the new year! I decided to start the year with a bright, cheery birthday card and Taylor's latest sketch. The pink in this card is the latest PTI color, Raspberry Fizz, but I'm having a hard time getting it to photograph correctly. It probably doesn't help that it's dark and rainy outside right now!

Now that I'm no longer in a panic to create more cards for my "Christmas" stash, I'm going to try to build a little "everyday occasion" card stash. I'm not completely ready to put away the snowmen and jolly holiday supplies, so I am going to try to adopt Sparkle's idea of making Christmas cards throughout the year so that I won't have so many to make at the end of the year. Her Christmas Card challenge started here. Isn't hers a great idea?!

Card is 5" x 5":
Stamps: Birthday Surprise, Cupcake Affair (Verve)
Paper: Raspberry Fizz, Vanilla Cream (PTI), Ocean (CTMH), Sasha (Prima)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Accessories: Markers (Copic), Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Cuttlebug (Provo Craft), ribbon, brads, white gel pen, foam boosters, thread, sewing machine
