Time to Celebrate

Good morning everyone! Another birthday is coming up at work, tomorrow in fact, and I was once again asked to create a birthday card for the occasion. In fact, almost once a week now I have a coworker come up to me asking for a card of some sort. So how do I decide what to create? I start with the basics, what colors, what sorts of sentiment, any particular image. Sometimes these questions help and other times it seems to confuse people, so I now send them either to my blog for them to browse or a link to my SCS gallery. For today's card one of the secretaries are turning 60 tomorrow and I was asked to create a red, white, and black card. I was also asked to use the image from my My Favorite Things stamp set Pamper Yourself, unfortunately I can't find that set! So I went searching through my other stamps and decided that although this wasn't the image I had intended to use, nor the sentiment, it would completely work! So this cute set finally got some ink, and since it was a big birthday I had to make it dressy.

Hope you like today's creation and be sure to come back here tomorrow, not only is it Paper Pretties Design Team Challenge time, but tomorrow also kicks off the Sneak Peeks from the August stamp release at Paper Pretties! Here is the release information:
