Happy B-day to a great sister-in-law

Here's a birthday card that I made for my amazing sister-in-law. I had the hardest time getting pictures to show the true colors of the papers and everything. The picture with the envie is the closest I could get.

Anyway, here's the cover:

I love this cupcake from a Hero Arts Clear Design Cupcakes set (which the sentiment above is from) and I just love stickles which I covered the wood flower from Kaiser:

The paper I used is double-sided which is so great when making cards to have such a pretty background on the outside and inside:

This sentiment is part of a stamp from one Stampendous' Scrumptious Shoes (I LOVE those stamps):

And here's the envie:

Cupcake mixture:
-CS: The Paper Co "Antique Rose" and Bazzill Basics "Tutu Pink"
-PP: K&Company "Classic K Mango Paper Pad"
-Stamps: Hero Arts Clear Design Cupcakes and Stampendous' Scrumptious Shoes "Birthday Cake" (just the sentiment)
-Prismacolor Pencils: PC928 Blush Pink, PC930 Magenta and PC946 Dark Brown
-Blossoms: Prima Flowers and Kaiser Scrapbook Wood Flourishes "Mixed Flowers"
-Cricut Cartridge: Tear Drops
-Stickles: Pink
-Misc: Flower Rhinestones, Gamsol, Black Pigment Ink, Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Mini Pop Dots, Adhesive
