The dots, stripes, colors, and party ware just pleased the former caterer in me ... it had me at hello, in other words!
Here is how I interpreted it, using Sock Monkey Surprise's little party hat and die, a few little snippets of patterned paper, and Oh Frappe stamp, and die, for the rest of the elements on my 'late to the party' birthday card:
Copic colored Frappe and party hat. Sentiment stamped and clear embossed onto vellum.
Hope the cute factor outweighs the late factor!!
