It's my niece's birthday during the month of February, and I wanted to make her a card. I used a card design similar to one made at Liz Thayer's March SAB 2013 cardmaking fest. My card is larger and square, and I gave added more mat layers, embossing the whte layer. I used my Deckled Rectangles Spellbinder die to edge the little greeting's green mat and the oval to cut out the embossed oval holding the cupcake stamp. Pearls were used in the lower right corner to add embellishment detail.
Niece Angie and my oldest daughter were the best of cousins and friends during their growing up years because they were closest in age. When our family began moving around the country with my husband's job, we tried to get the girls together for summer vacation visits. Either Angie would fly to our location, or Michele would return to California (where she was born) and visit wth Angie. I think they like that best as cousin Angie had a swimming pool, plus Grandma's and many aunts and uncles lived in the vicinity. To this day, they remain good friends and were in each other's weddings. So, we send birthday wishes to this all-growed up niece via my little homemade card!
