Happy Birthday, Vicki!

This is my second post of the day.  Click here for Winnie & Walter Premier of Scenery: Big Bang Bling and The Big, The Bold and Fun.

Today we're giving a big shout out to STAMPlorations teamie Vicki whose birthday was on Thursday.  I decided to case this card of Vicki's.  Lots of splats and a big happy.

Quite often Vicki will use luxurious satin ribbons and bows across the top of her cards, so I added one too.  Can't see it?  Here, take a closer look.

I'm entering my card into Time Out Challenge #6 where there's a photo inspiration:
