Happy Birthday from Zoe

Welcome back!  I know you are all probably very sick of me by now, but I am just going to continue to post.  I found a groove and am determined to get these cards posted before the end of the day today.  I believe I have 2 or 3 cards still to post.  

I would love if you guys could please let me know what you are thinking of the cards that I have posted thus far on my blog.  I take a lot of time to do them, and it would be nice to have some feedback so I can use it to plan future cards.

I thought it would be super nice to create a card from my niece to give to my sister on her birthday.  I had a stamp that I have been dyeing to use, so this was a great excuse to use it, and I knew that it would be perfect.  The image is just the sweetest, and I was exactly what I was going for! I used scraps of paper for the layout of the card and am very very happy with the way that it turned out!

Here's the front of the card...
