Berry Sweet Birthday

My daughter was sooooooo excited today because she was going to her best friend's birthday party!!  She hasn't seen her best friend since our move exactly two months ago, and although my daughter has already made some friends in a short amount of time, she's missed her every day.  Every day this week, there was a party countdown.  5 days until the party, 4 days until the party - well you catch my drift ;)  She just couldn't wait to get there and see all her old friends. 

I wanted to make her best friend a cute little card for her birthday using one of the Freebie Friday images from Bugaboo Stamps.  Thankfully the card is out of the house - the strawberries and frosting were making me so hungry just looking at it ;)

Love the use of the glossy accents on your cupcake...the whole image looks good enough to eat (not including the little fairies lol). So how did she like her card? I'll bet she loved it and was also so excited to see your dd again.
