Happy 11th Birthday!

Hi all!  Happy Weekend!  My daughter has a sleepover to go to tonight for her bestie’s 11th birthday.  It’s a ’50s themed party — the girls love Grease and my daughter was hoping for a poodle skirt, but I couldn’t quite accomplish that.  I did manage to pull out an old skirt of mine {you know, the pre-children clothes!}, which reminds me of one that Rizzo would wear and a plain yellow tee, along with a “neckerchief” and black flats.  She’d still love a poodle skirt and a Pink Ladies jacket! {Just like me because this has long since a favorite movie of mine!}

Anyway, I made up a card today for the birthday girl and it turned out quite cute.

I was going to color up a sweet image that the birthday girl liked, but I just didn’t have time.  So I opted for some Top Dog Dies dies.  {Unfortunately, they are no longer available, as TDD closed in December.} 
Using Make a Cake, I cut the cake from Melon Mambo (SU) with a white icing trim.  I cut two candles from Harvest Gold (PTI).  The candles fit perfectly behind two number 1 candles, cut with the High Rise Numbers from MFT {also, unavailable, sorry!} and I was able to make it appear like the numbers are the candles.  Then I cut my banner sticks from Kraft and the Happy Birthday banner from Nightshift Blue (MFT) and Melon Mambo.  To finish off the front, I added in some pearly embellishments — since I’m not mailing it, I can use some of these bulkier embellies!

Since I had an additional happy birthday banner set, I added them to the inside panel to complete the card.
