Happy Birthday Dana!!!!

Today we're doing a fun little blog hop for my BFF Dana.

Happy Birthday my friend!!!!

I made this card 'by request' for her. Truly...she told me one day that the Time To Celebrate a la mode image from MFT would make a "perfect card" for her birthday. How could I resist a request like that???

I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured her with copics. The cake was stamped a second time and popped for dimension. I had to add some orange glitter to the chocolate cake...and I had to use papers with orange in them because that's Dana's favourite colour. The patterned papers are from MME Fine & Dandy True Blue paper pad and the dainty dots dienamics created a perfect accent along the bottom of the card.

I know you'll have a super fabulous day celebrating, and don't forget to have a drink on me!!! Cheers!!!

Now you're off to check out what Leslie created, but we haven't quite convinced Leslie to start a blog yet so I'm sharing her darling card right here.
