Happy Birthday DH

Today is DH's birthday, and while I usually make him a card with a boat on it (he loves his sailboat), I decided to make him a cute little cupcake card, using Beate's weekend sketch, wsc66 sort of!  I had to turn it on its side to make it work, and I used the paper-pieced balloon image instead of two little whatevers:

John's birthday card

This card is a tad more busy than I usually make, what with all the little punched out confetti and glitter-- but he seemed to enjoy it!  He was even happier when I brought out his birthday "cake", which was a blueberry pie.  He is a pie kind of guy!  TFL!

  • Paper:  Ballet Blue, Kiwi Kiss, So Saffron,  Only Orange, Sage Shadow, Real Red, Yoyo Yellow, Basic Grey Cupcake
  • Ink:  Stazon Black
  • Acc:  Markers, Punches, Crimper, DD Glitter, Sponge Dauber.


  1. Fabulous LeAnne!! I am sure your hubby will love it!

  2. Love the colors in your card. Hope your hubby had an AWESOME birthday!

  3. I really like that crimped 'ribbon' behind the image panel. That is a really nice touch.

  4. what a fun b'day card for DH LeAnne!! I love the 'confetti' around the balloon and also on the DP!

  5. No wonder your DH liked his card--it's fabulous!!! Love the confetti and the crimped element!
