Birthday for an Aunt...and Taylor's Sketch Challenge #56

My aunt (who just celebrated her 25th anniversary with my uncle) is celebrating her birthday this week. She was born on Feb 29th, so does she get a birthday this year??

I did this based on Taylor's Expressions Cupcake Challenge #56. You don't have to use a cupcake (although I usually do when I participate in one of her challenges) just as long as you go along with the sketch, which this is #56:

You really should check out her challenges, they're a lot of fun!

So here's my take on the sketch:

First time I got to use the cool clear stamp set from Stampendous:

Just a little embellishment to the inside:

And of course a little more embellishment to the envie (on both sides):

Cake Mix:
-CS: The Paper Co "Antique Rose" and Bazzill Basics "Tutu Pink"
-PPs: Sandylion Kelly Panacci "Daisy Stripes" and "Floral Crochet-Cream"
-Stamps: Stampendous "Feminine Friends" perfectly clear stamp set
-Cricut carts: Storybook for A & M letters @ 1 1/2"
Opposites Attract for the rest of the letters welded and cut at 1 1/2"
-Misc: Adhesive, Colorbox Black Pigment Ink, Embossing Powder, Heat gun, mauve thread and sewing machine
