Happy Birthday to Jessica Knutsen!


     It's a special day for There She Goes owner Jessica Knutsen.  It's her birthday!  Present and past Trendsetters have come together with a blog hop to celebrate her special day.    She could use a nice happy birthday since she's about to be moving soon.
     I've used a reverse version of the Seize the Birthday sketch this week.  I also did a lot of fussy cutting.  The cake icing is up on pop dots and Miss Chef is three layers deep.  Here's a close up so you can see the layering better.


     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Stempelsonnen--from the bakery
Totally Papercrafts--buttons
Crafty Sentiments--buttons
Make It Monday--anything goes
Great Impressions--celebrations

     Have fun checking out all the birthday cards created in Jessica's honor.  :-)

This card is so completely beautiful. I am new to card making - can you explain what you mean by 'fussy cut', and I see that this stamp set is retired, do you have any idea where I could still obtain it, possibly from someone who is selling retired sets?

Thank you for taking the time to help a newbie. : )
