The background paper is from the Sale-a-bration Ice Cream Parlor DSP and I can't get enough of that stuff. It is so much cuter in person! The scallop on the cake platter is from that set as well. I also really like the stamp set I used. Both stamps (along with 11 other stamps) are from the "Bring on the Cake" set from the Occasions Mini. I REALLY REALLY hope that it makes the big catalog, but I couldn't take the chance of not having it so I purchased it now because you never know! If you see something you like in a mini catalog you have to go for it. There isn't time to waste since it is a huge gamble if we will see it again. The gamble wasn't worth it for me to wait. I make way too many birthday cards for my family to pass on a 13 stamp set that is all birthday sayings.
I have made a few of these for my family in the last few weeks and they have been a big hit. The cute candles on the top are from the Create a Cupcake punch and very easy to do.

I used the Brights DSP in Tempting Turquiose and the "Lucky You" phrase is stamped in Real Red using the Afterthoughts hostess set. This set can be yours absolutely FREE by placing a $150 order of hosting a workshop with sales totalling at least $150 (plus you get FREE product on top of the hostess set!). With Sale-a-bration going on that means you would get 3 stamp sets, 1 hostess set, and $15 FREE just by inviting your friends over and combining all your orders. Check with me on available dates ASAP because Sale-a-bration ends the 31st of this month!

Doesn't it just make you want to go to Paris?? I want to go badly! I love the black, white, and red combo. I know you are probably thinking that the background paper looks familiar....it should, it is very similar to the Love Letter DSP. That is where I got the inspiration. Though I used Whisper White instead of Very Vanilla. I stamped my own background paper for this card. It is nice having clear mount stamps. This set is called Artistic Etchings. With one of the larger clear blocks, I was able to put both stamps on the same block and stamp twice as fast. It was great!
