Day 22 - Mermaid Birthday Card

Hey Everyone!
Sorry I’ve been away the last couple days.  
It’s been busy around here, and I’ve had some last minute projects just sort of dropped in my lap, so trying to do them and stay on track for everything else.  
Today I want to share with you a Birthday Card that I made.  I know I said I was going to stay away from Birthday cards for a little, but I was playing with this stamp set and just couldn’t resist, it’s to stinken cute.  

I also thought that I would play along with the Challenge at Seize the Birthday, because why not?!

You'll see these stamps again on an order of baby shower invites that I'm making and will be posting at a later date once they are all complete. As far as this card goes...the little mermaid that I used on this card was just the sweetest, I thought she would be perfect to finish off the last card in an assorted bundle order that I’ve been working my way through.  I must admit it is totally perfect for a card for a little girl, and the wording in this stamp set is just the cutest play on words.

Here’s a picture of the main image on this card…
