Happy Birthday Chris!

Today we celebrate a special birthday girl- our former design team member & fun loving friend, Chris! Wish you were here to share a celebratory margarita & some chocolate cake, girl... Today, I'm providing the cake... but I'm willing to bet that somewhere along this birthday blog hop you'll find a margarita, too! ;) I hope this collection of cards brightens your day and gets your birthday off to a fabulous start!
My card features a cute cake lovin' a la mode image by My Favorite Things stamped on Copic paper cut with a Tim Holtz styled label. I've used papers from BoBunny & Jillibean soup (because they must be BLUE for Chris!) and some pretty new ribbons we got in the store recently!
The card (based on the current CPS sketch #222) is pretty simple... I paper pieced the frosting on the cake, stamped a Tim Holtz flourish around the edges, added touches of Spica glitter, some blingy pins and sprayed the whole card with Perfect Pearls Mist!

Chris- I hope it brings a smile! Birthday wishes come from Mom today, too... her card will be late though, she's away having cataract surgery today!

Now... HOP on over to see what Janet has for you on her blog! Enjoy... and be sure to eat some cake today!
