Happy Birthday - without using those words!

I found this new blog today and there is a challenge listed to create a b-day card without saying "Happy Birthday" on the card. I have been wanting to make this card and that was all the inspiration I needed. Here's the blog where you can see the challenge: {Just Me} (she has really cute stuff!) I received the cakebella image from Jillian Winters (thanks bella dear); I don't have this bella yet; but I think I need her! :D

I made her apron with striped paper...you know, vertical stripes make you look thinner! LOL

She was looking all fine and dandy till I had to mess her up at the end. :( So sad!!! So...I added a prima and pink polka dot flower with an aqua rhinestone in the middle. I also added 3 aqua jewels across the bottom.

The saying on the outside is "Don't sweat getting older!"; the quote on the inside? "Oh, those are hot flashes? Sorry!". It makes me laugh every single time. Those two sayings came from Hambo Stamps - another place to buy great products.

The base card is SU's Taken with Teal, layered with Pink Passion, the DP paper is Junk Padz Salsa Celebration - I really like all the paper in this collection - so fun and bright!

I hope you'll jump in and participate in the challenge; always fun to see what others come up with! Thanks for stopping by; I hope you have a great week! ~M.
