Inventory Reduction Challenge #49 - Happy Birthday

Shortly after I uploaded my card for Inventory Reduction Challenge 47 - Among My Favorite Things my computer died.  At that point my computer was NOT one of my favorite things. 

I now have my new computer up and running, but I changed operating systems from Windows XP to Windows 7.  My computer savior man was able to copy all of my files from the old hard drive to the new one.  My only problem is finding where everything is now.  Do you think it would be a help if I just took time to read the "Get Acquainted" file and did the tour?!?

Anyhow, I did get my card done for this week.  So without further ado --

Here is the front of yet another easel card.  I really love easel cards!!  Can you tell?

Tilda is getting so excited!  It's time for her birthday party and she has invited some of her very best friends to celebrate with her.  She is so excited to see what her friends have brought for  gifts.

The background paper is from DCWV Sweet stack.  The ribbon is from my stash.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, Hooked on Crafts, and WalMart.
At long last all of Tilda's friends are here and in a very festive mood.  Unfortunately the real birthday cake is a little smaller than the one in the background!

And just look at the neat packages everyone has for Tilda.

 Tilda stamps used were Tilda with Balloon, Christmas Eve Tilda, Birthday Tilda, Tilda with Small Gift, and Congratulations Tilda. 

Everyone is here now - Let the Fun Begin!!

Here is an overhead shot showing the placement of the figures and flowers along the front edge.

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to check out my teammies to see what they have done for the Happy Birthday theme for our Inventory Reduction Challenge. 

I have also lost my fancy signature and haven't had time to search for another one.
