This is the card I made for our granddaughter, Ashlyn, who is 11 years old today.  And yes, guess what that means................she will be 12 on 12-12-12!!!!  What a special birthday that will be for her next year.

This card was made using a Honeypop stamp set from Inky Antics....."Sundae Birdy".  I colored the designs with Copic markers and was pleased that there was a color that matched the sundae dish so well.

When I make these, I do the inside of the card first to make sure I get the Honeycomb paper pieces mounted just right.  I don't want to have the outside of the card all finished and then ruin the inside.  

The dotted background paper was also a good match for color and came from a JilliBean Blossom Soup paper pad.  Before attaching it to the front of the card, I used my Martha Stewart punch to add the "Happy Birthday".  The little bird on the front was stamped, colored and then cut with the Spellbinders Lacey Circle.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this card.  They are so fun to make.  If you are interested, I sell the Inky Antic HoneyPop stamp sets as well as the HoneyComb papers and sell them at a 20% discount.  Let me know if you are interested.

THANK YOU for stopping by!  Your comments are always welcome..............I love hearing from you.

The punched vases are from a 6 x 6 package of designer papers and for this card, I just left the flowers without coloring them. Thank...
