On to my card for this Week for MMSC22 And Creative Card Crew "Celebrations",

A Birthday card!  Seems like you can never have enough of these.  Very pretty, don't you think?  I got this stamp set several weeks ago at Michaels so if you like it they should still have them in stock.  Some of the highlights of this card is the paper piecing of the Birthday cake and it's layers, YUM.  I love the colors in this card and the 6 x 6 paper pack I bought just for this.  Also notice the lovely white ribbon surrounding the  cake, each lace through is tied off in a knot before being laced again to the next hole, I think it adds some visual details.  Today I am going to show you the envelope I created to go with this card.

The envelope. I also did up the inside of the card.  To view the inside of this card, I have it listed on ebay where you can view it.  Jane's Ebay Site
