Birthday Tri-Shutter Card

My bff is having a birthday so I wanted to make her a very special card. I also wanted to try this new card technique called tri-shutter. You can see a great tutorial at scs on how to make them. I used Melon Mambo textured cardstock for the base and the razzelberry lemonade designer paper for the panels, and mounted the stamped images onto pumpkin pie. (These are from the NEW Stampin' Up! Idea Book coming out next week!!!!

I also want to share the cake from my other bff's retirement dinner. Isn't it pretty? And it tasted yummy too. It's from Rao's Bakery, for those of you that live in the Houston area along 1960.
