The Big 7-0

A friend of mine called tonight and asked if I could make a card for her mother-in-law's 70th birthday. Of course I said yes (any excuse to make a card), and here's what I came up with. I tried to keep it fun and festive with the colors and the sparkle. Hope she likes it!

Stamps: Clear Cupcakes (Hero Arts)
Paper: Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, PTI white, SU retired dp, BasicGrey Sultry dp
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black
Accessories: glittered chipboard (Thickers), brads (Oriental Trading Co.), ribbon (Dollar Tree), Nestabilities circles & scallop circles, Copic markers (B02, E31, R32), clear glitter pen (Spica)
