Surprise

Kim shared this card on the Paper Smooches Blog yesterday. I used the cake and one of the flowers from Hubby and Wifey to make this birthday card which I gave to my husband last weekend. It's embellished with the squirrel from Hang Ups (the arms are from Wake Up), cake splatters from Surf & Turf, sentiment from Good Gab and speech bubble from He Said, She Said.

When I saw this on the PS blog, I didn't have to read to know it was yours! The cake looks delicious... well, except maybe for the squirrel on top! But he's so cute, you'd have to forgive him for jumping out of the cake. :D
