Take me to your cake! I love that saying. After all, isn't cake the best part about birthdays?
Today the Impression Obsession challenge is all about birthday cards. For my card, I used a cake from the CL203 Birthday Cakes clear set and a saying from the band new CL329 Let them Eat Cake clear set. The paper is from the Basic Grey Wisteria line.
One of the reasons the theme for the challenge is birthdays is to celebrate the birthday of Operation Write Home. Operation Write Home organizes it so that handmade cards are sent to the troops that can then be used by the troops to send to their families. You can read more about their work here, and there is even a place where you can make a donation to help with the cost of postage.
In honor of Operation Write Home's birthday, there is a chance today to win a $25 Impression Obsession gift certificate. In order to win, you have until 11:59 pm EST today to leave a comment on each of the participating designer blogs (including this one).
