What's One More Frigen Candle? Bugaboo Stella Birthday Card

Surprise! Something other than a Christmas card today. I whipped up this birthday card for my sister-in-law's December birthday and even thought I mailed it early, as of this date she hasn't gotten it yet. Grrrrr. 

This hilarious Stella digi is from the now defunct Bugaboo; she never fails to crack me up. This 'Santa just called you ain't gettin' *@#!' is a past favorite.

Paper is Craft Sensations Lovely Flowers design pad. My every faithful ric-rac die and Carnation Pink Nuvo Crystal Drops give a bit of textured bling.
