Birthday Celebrations

Time to update my blog.  I have been enjoying a visit from one of my sons, so blogging hasn't been happening. We also got to celebrate our favourite daughters birthday recently (we only have one, so it's fun to say that). When you turn 15 it's fun to decorate your cake with a theme and you can get away with using "Pet Shop's" just for fun.  Miss 15's nick name is "Bee", hence the "Bee" theme.We were out shopping and saw this "Pet Shop" that had a bee hive and bee in the set, along with a wee ladybird.   Perfect excuse to be purchased for a cake decoration and can then be added to the 'stored' tin of "Pet Shop's". Here's the cake Miss 15 made and decorated.
The card followed with the 'bee' theme we started on the cake, this gave me another opportunity to use the wonderful wee bee stamp in the "Nature Walk" stamp set.
I brayered using So Saffron and Certainly Celery ink and then stamped the grass on top.  I water coloured the flower and bees on water colour paper and cut them out and then attached them.  Part of the top note makes a lovely side tab.
This card folds open differently then the usual card style. This is the inside of her card. I love how you have 3 panels to add sentiments and loving words to. I have made a matching centre panel to match the card front.
I finally chopped into my last sheet of favourite DSP (retired). Love this paper. The wee 'bee' is from the Sale-a-bration set "Sweet Summer".  The greetings are from the "Create a Cupcake" set. I had fun making this card.  Hope you enjoyed it too!!

Happy Birthday to "Bee"! The cake looks fab (and yummy) and I LOVE the card, Anita. Your brayered inner looks so cool and I really like the Top Note Tag on the front. Our babies grow up so fast, don't they?!!
