XoXo Happy Birthday Card

My sister texts me and says, "Do you have time to make a birthday card tonight?"  I say, "sure."  So she comes over and I immediately send her to my Pinterest card board so she can find something she likes.  Why Pinterest?  It's where I go when I have low mojo, I'm bored, or if my sister calls me two hours before she arrives demanding I ooze creativity. This is what we came up with, or rather, scraplifted from this lovely lady's blog.  As you can see it's pretty much a complete scraplift, but hey, that's what happens when I don't have time to think about a design ahead of time.  It's still cute anyway, I mean there was a reason I pinned it to my Pinterest board.

The paper is basic bazzill cardstock, and the background of the card is from DCWV's Art of Type.  What do those little words say?  Believe it or not it's the Declaration of Independence.  My sister and I have a bet as to whether her boyfriend will notice.  There is a little bit of Echo Park's Here and Now (those gorgeous yellow lips), a Papertrey Ink stamp, a Cuttlebug embossing folder and it's done.  Thank you Pinterest.  Thank you Silhouette!

Thanks for stopping by today!
