- white card stock

Below that line were four lines, each preceded by a small box to check off. I wrote in four of my friend's positive qualities, then checked off each box.
I finally added birthday greetings, in the form of a rubber-stamped "Happy Birthday", below the "ballot". (Added a few well wishes of my own, of course).
I was worried my friend wouldn't think her card was celebratory enough in regards to her birthday, but my fears were groundless - she loved it, and told me the Election Day theme was clever.
I guess it was, at that - now, if only the politicians elected tonight will be clever about solving our country's problems!
