January Challenge by Stephanie

Design Team Member Stephanie submitted this calendar for the January NEW Challenge.   She said, "For this month's challenge, I designed this cute little birthday card! I've been on a bit of a streak for creating little cute cards (instead of scrapbooks), I'm terrible at sending cards if I have to make them in advance so I'm working to get better about that by making them in advance. 

Other than my work-ahead approach, you may be wondering what's new about this card? This card uses a cupcake from my favorite new paper pad (SEI, Happy Day Collection), my new homemade light box, one of my new stamps from The Ink Pad, and a new technique (the shadowbox layout) that I picked up from the WMS Grand Calibur party! All in all, I think I'm getting the hang of CAS!"
More details and links can be found at Stephanie's blog here. Now
