Happy Birthday to YOU

Good morning friends!  I'm back with a fun birthday card for my sweet little nephew who just turned one last week.  The kids went shopping for him over the weekend and we are ready to send this sweet boy his birthday surprise.

I grabbed my With Love stamps along with my Birthday to You Plain Jane and used the second Viva la Verve sketch for March.

I stamped the cupcake from With Love in black ink on kraft card stock and then stamped it again on some Harvest Lane 6x6 paper from Simple Stories so I could paper piece the top.  For the banner along the bottom of the image panel, I used the Pennant Trim Die.

On the inside of the card, I used more Simple Stories paper and the fun Scroll Plain Jane with the coordinating Scroll Die and stamped the sentiment from Birthday Phrases in the center.

Be sure to check out these fabulous items waiting for you in the Verve Store:
