I saw an example of a card like this on my Uplines website. I just love the Caprice paper pack, and sometimes I forget about all of the wonderful paper that we have come out with. I used Crystal Blue and Honey cardstock with Chocolate ink.
I also showed my group how you can use one pattern from our fabulous card making books to make different cards. We actually made the birthday one. I used Wishes and the pattern called Gallery.
Here are the other two cards made using the Gallery pattern from Wishes. I used Autumn Terracota fibers for the lion's mane.
This card idea came from Jeanette's blog.
She used a CD sleeve and covered it with paper. Made a little card to slip in the inside and voila! you have a cute card. I used Blue Ribbon paper for my card. Check out Jeanette's blog at

The August Stamp of the Month is a great stampset to use for any kind of celebration you might have. Make an invitation, make a card, make a festive layout with this great set. Here I have made a 6x6 card using Twilight, Sunflower, Sunny Yellow and Clover Meadow card stock. Added some pewter brads and I have a great card to share. I used the Pieced Together card pattern found on page 34 in Wishes. Also, on page 61 of Imagine, I used the Empressing with Metal-rimmed Tags Technique on the Sunflower cardstock. Order D1352 It's Your Day now only during August. You might even get it FREE!
