Your birthday popped up!

Hi everyone!  Just a quick and simple card to share with you today.  A while back I had hosted a swap for making focal pieces and this popcorn image was my submission (with the black mat).  I used a stamp set by Clear & Simple Stamps called Bucket-o-Popcorn fun which I love because you can fill in the oval with whatever sentiment fits the theme of your card!  :)  There's also a coordinating set called Popcorn Extras:

Fun, right??  :)  I colored the image with my Copics and used ColorBox mint ink for the sentiments.  

Since my focal piece had been made already, all I had to do to make this card was emboss some red cardstock and mat it on a piece of black cardstock.  It was so fast and easy- this card took less than five minutes!  Now I just need to find time to make more focal pieces!  ;)  I used this card for my cousin, who just turned 21.  It's hard for me to make cards for men around that age- I try to stay from anything too cutesy, but I can't help using puns!  :)  I hope you enjoy my calorie-free card, thanks for stopping by!

Very cute, love that stamp set. I love how you colored the popcorn so it looks like they have a little bit of butter on them!
