Birthday Card with a Little Sparkle

It was my niece Brittany's birthday yesterday and I actually sent her a card already! I'm trying to be better at remembering birthdays and sending a card before the date.

I was totally inspired and so impressed by THIS card by Elise that I had to CASE it for Brittany's card.

Here's my version with a little gold embossing:

I needed to get this mailed quickly on Thursday or I would have restamped the "cake" to make it less wonky and maybe tried to get the stitch lines a little straighter. Oh well, it's the thought that counts, right? I stamped the inside too and then forgot to photograph it, doh.

Supply List: Lawn Fawn- Bake Me a Cake, Year Two, Blue Skies (banner); Paper is Studio Calico and brand new Lawn Fawn ( brown wood grain from Into the Woods).

I hope you are enjoying a lovely summer Sunday (or Monday for my friends on the other side of the world),
