A CASE of the happy birthdays!

I saw Sandy's cute happy birthday card today and decided I would CASE it.  It's a simple design with just two patterns of paper, so it couldn't be that big of a deal, right?

I computer generated my sentiment (font: throw my hands up in the air) but stamped and colored the cupcakes by hand since I didn't have stickers that would work.  I added in the photo corner and took out the pearls and banner on the left side. 



The complication (because there's always a complication) was that after I cut all the paper for 36 cards, I broke my corner rounder on the first card!  Ugh!  It still sort of works, but it won't spring open after a cut, so I have to beat it on my desk top so the spring releases between each punch.  I suppose it's time to e-mail Fiskars to get a replacement.
