Ready Set Smile

My and my husband's favorite aunt (my side of the family) celebrated a birthday on Sunday. This is the card he dug from my stash to give to her.

The image is from Sassy Studio Designs and was colored w/Copic Markers. After coloring, the image was cut with a Dienamics Pierced Square Die. I'm sure I used a sketch but can't recall where it originated. The design papers are from my stash. I also used a Cuddlebug embossing folder and Spellbinders Nestabilities Pennant die with the sentiment from Creat w/TLC. Although it's not showing up well in the photos I also used a glue pen and Ranger Holographic Embossing Powder to add highlights to the cake. Finally I added foam squares, flowers from my stash, clear rhinestone bling, and Gelly Roll pen as the finishing touches. 

My aunt is crafty in her own right so this card along with a craft store gift card were the perfect gift!
