S'mores Birthday

I have a friend who loves s'mores.  We were on vacation when her birthday rolled around, and I was not prepared by having a card already made!  I had seen a really cute card made with the s'mores image from SU's Under The Stars, but once I got home, I couldn't find the sample.  (I need to thank my stampin' buddy Shawn for stamping the images for me, as I don't have this stamp set either!!)  SO of course, Last-Minute LeAnne that I am, I rushed to make this one the morning that we were to get together for the day:


It is not nearly as cute as the one I saw; when I have more "leisure" time (LOL) I will search again in my favs file to see if I can find it.  Anyway, this was quite simple using a retired birthday sentiment and some computer-generated words for the inside:


When I asked my husband if he knew what the picture was on the front, he said, "An ice cream sandwich?"  Men.

Thanks for visiting and be sure to come back tomorrow for the Color Throwdown AND the Diva Coffee Break Designs challenges!

I love this card. Now I am curious to see if you can find your original inspiration and what you can work from there!

This is really fun, LeAnne! I think you did a great job, even if it wasn't what you first had in mind... (sometimes the best card happen that way!) It reminds me that birthday cards that aren't literally a cupcake, cake, etc. are REALLY GREAT! Thanks for MORE wonderful inspiration!
