Speedy the Cat, Card Makin' Mamas and Crafty Ann's Challenges

The challenges at Card Makin' Mamas and Crafty Ann's sites were to make birthday cards this week, and at Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge, we were to use food on our cards. I used a paper pieced birthday cake on this card which would qualify for all. All the stamps on this card inside and out were from Raisin Boat and they made me smile, so hopefully will do the same for the person who receives the card.
I tried a new inside idea with a fold that pops out when you open the card to reveal the saying on the inside. I used two sizes of nesties for the opening and am ek success candle punch along the top. The inside piece is 8" x 5" and you score at 2", 4" and 6"with the center fold being a mountain fold.

Stamping smiles, Karen
