Mom-in-Law Birthday!

Hi Everybody - Happy Friday!,

We are celebrating my mother-in-law's birthday this weekend. She's in town for a big fitness convention. Did I mention she teaches Pilates and is over 60!? She's a fitness guru, for sure. And looks terrific! Wow, do I have some work to do on myself (maybe not typing this blog and sipping a delicious Sauvignon Blanc *wink wink*) Ah, well, we all have to do what we all have to do.

I decided to make her a card with her favorite treat - a cupcake. She loves chocolate but the girly, sparkly My Mind's Eye papers where just too cute to pass up.

I also used the incredibly wonderful stamps by Emma at My Creative Time I think I went kinda crazy with Stickles - I even put it on the rose I made. :~D
This is from the Birthday Bash cartridge and My Creative Time sentiment stamp.  I used Martha's punch around the page and embossed the pink paper using my good ol' Cuttlebug.
This rosette is from Christina at Creations with Christina.  I bought it already cut on manila paper and all I had to do was to bend it around a paintbrush handle until it resembled a rose.  After putting a pink pearl in the middle, I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist in Golden Terracotta and added a little Stickles to the edges. 
Hope you like it!
