Happy Birthday!

Today's card uses Steph's fun sketch (TECC52SH) that she created for Taylor's one year cupcake challenge anniversary. I stamped my cuppie image twice, colored both, cut one out, then I popped it on top of the other one to add dimension.

Up until a few weeks ago, I'd been taking photographs in my bathroom (the only place where there are white walls), then I started taking them in my blank white wall cubes. That worked out pretty well until I decided that I couldn't keep a cube empty just to photograph my cards and I didn't want to move things out of it each time I wanted to take a picture. So, I decided to invest in an inexpensive light tent. So far, it is pretty convenient since it folds up easily. I'm not that happy with the end result, though. I still think I need to practice more with it or move it to a better location... so please excuse the weird shadows in the photo!
