I'm here today to show you my Christmas birthday card to my niece Cortlynn.  She has just turned 11 but didn't get her letter to Hogwarts.  So sad.  Oh well.  Life goes on.  

It's so tough to have a birthday in December and she is a lucky one.  Her mother took her and her little sister to an indoor hotel and waterpark!  How cool is that!  

My daughter also has a birthday in December and I have to get going on that one as she lives pretty far away and I have to get it mailed out.  She just graduated from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  What a name.  I'm so very proud of her.  

For this card I used an image from Pixie Dust Studio.  I thought she was just so cute and Cortlynn loves cupcakes (although her favorite is chocolate).  She is colored with Copic, Whisper Strokes and Stampin' Up markers.  The papers are all from my Stash 'O Scraps so I'm not sure where they came from.  The ribbon is from Offray and the flowers also from my stash.  

I hope she likes the card.
