Happy Birthday, Little Man!

For any of you who are regular readers of TSB, you know that I have been in the midst of birthday frenzy for my little rugrat's 5th birthday party. Well, Saturday was the big day, and I think it was a big success! (Lots of happy kids and no major tantrums!) So, I have one more birthday card to share with you today to help me wish my wee best buddy many happy returns!

I used my new go-to birthday set from Taylored Expressions, You Take the Cake. (Note: this set will be available for purchase from the TE Store in December.) I colored in this darling present stack, glittered it up, and fussy cut to pop out over some fun patterned paper.

I thought I'd share a photo of the entertainment at my son's reptile-themed party. Those are LIVE snakes -- I just about passed out, but all the kids loved it!

Stamps: You Take the Cake (Taylored Expressions); Patterned Paper: Hello Cupcake! (Imaginisce); Fibers: Twine (Doodlebug); Cardstock: Choice Snow (Taylored Expressions), Yellow textured (American Crafts); Accents: button (generic); Diamond Stickles (Ranger); Coloring Medium: Sketch Markers (Copic)

I shuddered when I saw the pic LOL. I think I would have passed out in person!

The card is super cute and I love the touches of sparkle on the presents & balloons.

Happy Belated Birthday to your son!
