Happy Birthday, Michelle!



Guess what? Today is Michelle Rodgers' birthday!!!

Whoooo-hoooooo, Michelle! Happy Birthday, gf! I hope your day is AWESOME! ....you're not working today, are you?? Good Lord, I hope not!...if you are though, I hope they at least go easy on you!

Michelle loves Penny Black stamps so I pulled out my Critter Party clear set and made this card for her. The main image is three layers deep with foam tape. It's stamped once on the circle, a second full image is up on foam tape, and then the hands/gift and the two feet are up on a third layer of foam tape. The layout is Jen del Muro's SFYTT from last Saturday.

Here's a close-up:


I stamped more images from the Penny Black set on the inside:
