Happy Bean Birthday

I have to say that I LOVE making Birthday cards, especially when I can imagine the recipient opening their mailbox and finding one of my creations inside, instead of a boring old bill...which comes, regularly like Birthday's, no matter if we like them or not. Hopefully, this little latte sippin' lady will put a smile to a certain someone's face this month, as she celebrates another fabulous year! 

This week over at the Hand Stamped Sentiments Blog, they are warming up to fall with this lovely color pallet of Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie & Night of Navy
the sketch for my card came from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Blog

A lovely brown box was dropped off on my front porch yesterday and I was able to try out my NEW Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder with the Happy Birthday sentiment, FUN STUFF, I tell ya! 

 How cute is she in her white jeans and polka dotted blue top?

A sweet little treat tucked inside!

The following SU! products were used to create this card (and then some)...

Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Night of Navy, Whisper White & Cherry Cobbler

Ink: Versa Mark

Stamps: (Hostess) Happiest Birthday Wishes
Like it a Latte (retired)

Punches: Scallop Edge & Word Window

Ribbon: Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding

Bigs Dies: Scallop Circle & Clear Circle
