Elise, oh my, this card is just too fun! Each time I see you girls use the All Occasion Tag die and stamps, I feel like I need it. Pretty soon, I'm not going to be able to resist anymore! :)

I'm so happy that you had a great birthday! You, dearie, are SUCH a sweetheart- you deserve nothing but the absolute BEST!

Your card is absolutely AWESOME...just like YOU!

Love this card. At first I thought it was a masculine card but then I saw the ribbon and now I think it is a fun girl card but then I go back to a masculine. Great to have it both ways, shows that you have a fantastic design.

Age is only a number right?!? You rock Elise and will always be a *girl* after my own heart!! Look at that fabulous card! I love how your rustic western style still shines through - so fun! You rocked these colors and I love all the dimension!

Stunning use of DSP, Elise! LOVE how you've clustered your glittery stars around the die-cut window, too! And that scrumptious bow is the PERFECT finishing touch!
