A B-day Card & Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #23

FINALLY, I had time to participate in Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #23 . I've only been able to do it one other time. This sketch was perfect for the card that I wanted to make for my friend (the other twin sister, Lisa) who had their b-days last week (I know I've very late!). And I'm very excited to be able to submit it to Taylor.
