Elegant birthday card

Hello!

Today's card is a card I made for my MIL'S birthday. I made it with the new Elegant Cakes cartridge. I just love this cartridge. I has some really classy cuts on it. I was not sure I would like it much until I saw it and I was smitten.



The paper is Bo Bunny and the cardstock is Papertrey Ink. The stamps used are from Papertrey Ink.
Don't forget my huge drawing(Just Because Cards, Preserves, Elmo's party, Destinations, Serenade AND You pick one PRE-ORDER of the new cartridges(announced today but *excludes Cake Basics*) from Hallmark Scrapbook) on Thursday! You can enter in the drawing by posting on THIS post and signing up as a follower.

Have a great day!

At first I saw "cakes" and thought, "great, can't use it for cards and scrapbooking" until I saw what you had done, and done quite nicely, and now I HAVE TO HAVE that cart too. Simple but pretty.
