Happy Birthday!!!

That's right! Happy Birthday is the new challenge at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog. Our sponsor for this challenge is Some Odd Girl, so be sure to pop over and play along!

I made this card for my son. He will be 8 on September the 11th. He wanted a Super Mario Birthday...Did you know that there is NOWHERE to buy a Super Mario cake. Luckily I found a lady that makes cakes that is gonna do it for me. Anyway, I am keeping this card hidden from him because I can not wait to see the look on his face when he sees this card!
