Warm Birthday

Hello everyone!!

Today i have a card for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. The inspiration is Smitten, anything that you love this time of year. I kind of took it as something to keep us warm this winter and boy do we need it! The lows are in the negative with even colder wind chills!!

I don;t drink coffee or tea but i love to drink hot cider in the winter, so for my card i used a cup image from The Alley Way Stamps Breakfast Club set. I found some plaid pattern paper that i kind of wish was a real blanket!, it looks so warm and cuddly!! I colored the cup with distress markers to match the pattern paper.

I die cut the cup with a scalloped circle and adhered it to my cardbase with foam tape. I then stamped Happy Birthday below the scallop.

  1. Your card makes me feel all warm and toasty; and that cup would suit my coffee perfectly! The background paper reminds me of a snuggly flannel blanket! Wonderful card; perfect for the CC challenge and perfect for brightening my day!
