Birthday Card for a Sweet Friend


I made this card for my friend Donna who recently celebrated her birthday. She has 2 yorkies so I thought this image would be perfect for her card. You can click on her name and scroll down to see a picture of her adorable doggies :) I used all SU! papers and cardstock for this, along with a Martha Stewart cupcake punch and a decorative dots embossing folder from SU. The birthday sentiment is from SNSS and the cherry on top of the cupcake is a gemstone from Pizzazz Aplenty. I used an older (I forget the name) embossing folder to add a swirl to the frosting and used a Scor-pal to add the grooves in the cupcake paper.

I'm taking this over to the Tuesday Throwdown #304 challenge which is "Happy Birthday" as well as the Snippets Playground #240 which is to always use snippets.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a great Sunday!

The blue and red colors make this card so cheerful, especially with the cute puppy face as the focal image. I like how you used different embossing folders for different elements. I can only imagine your friend loved the card!

As nice as this card looks here on Carol's blog let me tell you it is even nicer in person. I am so lucky to have received this precious card for my birthday. You really knows how much my "babies" mean to me so you picked the perfect image to use. Every bit of detail was put into this card, which is the norm for you, Carol, but I need to tell you that it is totally appreciated. I do hope you have a good Sunday. We are getting on and off rain all day, but at least the dreadful heat is gone for a couple of days. Thanks Again.

I'm so ashamed of myself for forgetting Donna's birthday! Glad you remember though and with this cute card. I bet this little pup looks just like one of her babies. Precious!

This card is SO cute, Carol! I love the Yorkie and the pretty paper you used! Kinda reminds me of my Bailee since she is part Yorkie/Cairn Terror. Donna is sure to love this! Happy Birthday to her!

A really sweet card Carol and Donna tells us it was even better in real life. I love the little dog image and have a friend who would adore this too. The swirl on the cupcake frosting looks good. Barbxx
