OH MY WORD, this might just be the cutest card EVER!!!
I made this card for my husband's cousin's son who is turning 3. His birthday party is tomorrow. I saw this giraffe on line and thought it was so cute and knew that I had to make it one day. Today was that day! The cupcake is from the sock monkey set.
All I knew was that I wanted to put a cupcake on the card to make it birthdayish, but when I stamped one and tried to put on the card with him, it was just too small. That is when the idea for the stack came to me. My stroke of genius for the day!
Okay, enough of me bragging about how I am a stamping goddess! Remember I totally cased the giraffe!
