Bright and Happy Birthday

Hey there Stampers!
How was your weekend?  Wasn't the weather just the best?  How lovely it was to enjoy some sunshine and warmer temperatures!  I could become accustomed to weather like that very quickly, couldn't you?

Today's card uses a very versatile stamp set that could be used to make a card for anyone's birthday. It's called Party With Cake and you can see it on page 7 of the Occasions catalog.  It is a totally gender neutral stamp set.  It also works for any age, which is great!

Here's the card I made with it...

I guess the Melon Mambo makes this just a bit "girly," but if I had used Crushed Curry instead, the card would be more masculine.
The DSP is called "It's My Party" ( page 5 of the Occasions catalog).  I stamped the sentiment in Melon Mambo, then cut it out with one of the framelits from the Lots of Labels set.  I added some knotted thick baker's twine (p. 6 of the Occasions catalog) to give a little "pop" of color and texture

Now for the fun part.... check out the inside!

I'm so happy I finally got out my Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies and tried making this pop-up card.  It was so easy to do,  I'm sorry I didn't try it earlier.  If you come to Coffee and Cards on April 13th at 10:30 am at my house, this is one of the cards we'll be making.  Then you can see for yourself just how easy it is to put a card like this together. 

How's your "to-do" list looking today?  Mine is calling me, so I'm off to start working on it!  May it be a sunny day in your world, even if we're getting a bit of rain!
Happy stamping!
