A Pretty Postage Birthday

Once again the card looks SO much prettier in person than in this photo.  There is a nice shadow at the bottom of the card from my camera.  I need to learn to always take the photos with the card standing erect instead of laying it down.  

I used the Pretty Postage set for the Happy Birthday cakes.  I used Raspberry Ripple, Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point.  The only pad of the three that is new is the Raspberry Ripple and it sure does make a difference in stamping between the old pads and the new ones.  It will take a long time before I get all new pads.  Most of mine are in mint condition so I can't justify replacing them.  I have plenty of ink, though the new ink will work on the old pads so that's not really an issue.  It is nice to use the new pads and I will replace the old ones as needed.

Back to my card.  The base of the card is Very Vanilla.  The decorative paper is from the Comfort Cafe pack.  I layered it on top of a piece of Pacific Point card stock.  The 2 punched stamp images were also set in place (with Dimensionals) on top of a piece of Pacific Point card stock.  And behind that on the bottom is a piece of the Raspberry Ripple punched out and set in place.

At the very bottom, the Happy Birthday is from the Perfectly Penned set.  I just need to write a few words on the inside and get this sent off to my sister-in-law for her birthday early next week.  WOW, can you believe it, I'm actually on time with a card?  I'm just as shocked as you are!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
