Birthday Hugs


I created today's card for the Papertrey Ink monthly blog hop. I just had to join in the fun when I saw the inspiration photo.


I love the black with pops of color in the inspiration photo.  I use that idea a lot in my card designs, it's perfect for CAS card making.   I was especially drawn to the little cookie with the stripes, that's what inspired my card.  I'm using the Stylized Autumn stamp set again, this time I included the adorable fox in the set.

Happy Hump Day!!!

PS - Those cookies are way too pretty to eat ;)
