Birthday Wishes

Hi Friends!
Happy Monday!
I'm back with today's challenge #208 over at The Pink Elephant and it's time to create a FEMININE BIRTHDAY CARD.

It's also time for another DUEL with the Dueling Darlings!
This month our hostess for the Divas was Barb  (Debbie for the Dazzlers) and she sent this FABulous kit, filled with many of my favorite things! Yummers! Our theme was "Cool Creations" and we were asked to make a card and share our favorite Summer cooler. I don't know that I have a favorite, but I LOVE iced tea! Does that count? I know it's not a sweet treat, but it's how I usually cool down in Summer.

For my card, to meet both TPE and DD challenges, I designed this Birthday card for my boss, who is a really special lady and friend! I hope she likes it!

Have a wonderful Monday! Be sure to join us at TPE this week and share your inspiration with us!

You colored the image so well! I love the ice cream colors. The little sentiment is perfect too!

The stitching looks great on that peek-a-boo polka dot layer.
