My Baby is 27!

How did that happen? More importantly how can Nicole be 27 when I'm only 35 hee hee??!!!
Happy birthday my gorgeous girl :-D
Well it's true, it's Nic's birthday (not that I'm 35...hard to believe I know lol) and I'm meeting her and Ben for lunch at our favourite deli Eat this afternoon. Normally they would come for dinner but they have Booty Camp and NOTHING but then end of the world would stop her going! I have a M & S cake for her so I know they'll stop by after ;-D
For her card I've used Magnum & Lily Cupcake Surprise...I can't tell you how much I love this image :-D It turned out pretty much how I imagined it...let me know what you think....

I wanted the image to look like it was in a frame and I think it worked. I had a practice run but it still took me a while to get the aperature the right thickness. I used my Grand Nestie Circle to make the base of the card (you can't see it!) and then used my Grand Nestie Scalloped Circle to make the main frame. I did it this way because I didn't want to see the flat hinge of the card IYKWIM. I used another GNC and a regular circle Nestie to make the next two aperatures sewing the larger one to the lilac scallop circle.  I coloured the image with my Copics and paper pieced the cupcake base adding the obligatory fluffy stuff, Glossy Accents and Glamour Dust! I then taped it to the white base then stuck the smallest aperature over it. I then raised the top of the card with foam pads so it looked like a frame. I was originally going to make some rolled flowers but didn't think they'd look right so dug around in my drawers and came across some brads I've had for years. I cut off the prongs and stuck them around the frame with GA. I made the sentiment on the computer and I'm not sure if the wording is right...should it say 'For a Fabulicious Daughter on Her Birthday' or 'on Your Birthday'??? I couldn't decide so just guessed lol. If anyone knows please set me straight :-D

Do you like? I love it...and it's not square!!!!

This is great Kerry! Hope Nicole has a great birthday and I don't think the wording matters, it is the thought that counts.
