Birthday Sparkle

A show of hands - who like sparkles??  I do, I do!!  I'm certain my mom does too, and this is her birthday card.  Just finished it, today, on her birthday.  Note to inspiration - we're cuttin' it a tad close, but it will be delivered on time later today to the party.

Truth be known, I really had planned on finishing the card earlier, but another trip to emergency for mom redirected my focus.  Lung infection caught early - whew!  Thankfully, I have a feisty mother who said,  'no way am I going to spend my birthday in the hospital' (numerous exclamation marks). My sister and I have a party planned - mmMMMmmm delicious homemade lasagnas and other yummy foods (desserts), plus presents for mom..

My original thought was to make a pink card with some embellishments, but it wasn't working for me.  I'm so relieved and overjoyed knowing the party is a go!  The sentiment expresses how I'm feeling.

I found this really sweet butterfly embossing folder to use on the layer, and using my silver sparkle paper and red glimmer paper I die cut the butterfly and happy.  The detail on the butterfly are cuts made from the Stampin' Up! die, but bad me....I didn't use SU paper and the little pieces in the butterfly wouldn't come out.  I'm okay with it, although I'm making a mental note to not use vinyl backed paper with detailed dies.

Lots to do before the party!  Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Crafting and Happy Birthday to Mom.
