50th Birthday Card

This is a special request card from a friend in work.  I've no idea what Paula looks like or anything about her, but I reckon she'd like a huge birthday cake and a new dress for her 50th ;)

My image is from Stamping Bella - coloured with watercolour pencils.  I added stickles as the jam in the cake, Wink of Stella on the icing, clear gloss on her crown and shoes.  Gold peel off number stickers finish the sparkle effect nicely!
 I would have liked my gingham layer to have been a bit wider, but wanted to get this snippet used up.

As You Like it ... masculine or feminine - I definitely feel it's easier to make girly cards, I seem to have much fewer male themed stamps and papers.

I agree that it's easier to make girly cards. I think there are simply fewer masculine products available and not nearly as much inspiration for them online. Your card today is super cute, though. The birthday celebrant will love it, I'm sure!!

This really is a darling card Lynne - I bet the recipient loves it! I love that you 'wanted to ge the gingham snippet used up' :) Sometimes I'm scared my huge pile of snippets will stake a takeover bid here!
