A Birthday Card

My daughter's friend turned 15 yesterday. It is funny how she comes to me the day before, and "Mom, I need a card for Katie tomorrow" as if I am a card dispensing machine! haha I will get right on it! (I actually kind of like having to drop everything to stop and make a card)
I used Everyday Button Bits from PTI. I used a nestabilities die to cut the scalloped rectangle then ran it through the machine again with a sizzix embossing plate for the diamond pattern. I don't know if you can see but there is a subtle yellow print on the paper. Then I punched out some scallop circles and cut them to put behind some of the buttons

Then I baked some chocolate chip cookies and put them in this box that I had. I just cut some paper to cover whatever was on top of the box.It isn't my usual type of birthday card (cupcakes haha) but Bailey said she loved it and that makes me happy. Hope you have a good day!
