Pop Up Birthday Card... and a Lamborghini

Here's another pop up card I made similar to my owl card that I posted recently. The link for the tutorial is in that post. I used my favorite distressed line of Lasting Impressions paper and the cupcake is dry embossed using a Lasting Impressions template. The Happy Birthday sentiment is stamped.

And now for the Lamborghini... On Friday night I went to see my favorite hockey player Mike Green at a local sports bar. He and another Capital, Nick Backstrom, were bartending and trying to raise money for charity. There were a ton of people there and I feel lucky to get close enough to take these pictures. I left there kind of disappointed that I wasn't able to have either one of them serve me a drink! We were walking down the road to where our car was parked, and noticed Mike Green's lamborghini parked on the street!! I took advantage of the photo op. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Your card is super awesome. I LOVE the paper and the pop up technique is terrific. Who wouldn't want to receive a card like that for their birthday?!
About Mike Green. It is a shame he wasn't able to serve you your drink. That would have been an awesome photo op. Looks like it was pretty crowded. It's good though that you got a few pictures and the Lamborghini ! wow! Both You and the car look marvelous!
