SSSC147 - 50 and FABULOUS!

It's time for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #147.  I used Karen's sketch for this week to create a 50th birthday card for my dear sister-in-law, we threw a surprise birthday party for her on the third of this month and it was so fun.
The glitter was flying while I made this card that's for sure, lol I had it everywhere.  I wanted the card for my sister-in-law to be glittery and fun so I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Big Birthday Wishes with the coordinating number dies and the Cupcake Collection stamp set to coordinate with the My Mind's Eye cupcake designer paper I was using.  I started out by die cutting the numbers from chipboard and added some glitter, then die cut a square of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment and inked in a border with a fine point pen.  To finish off my card, the cupcake pieces were die cut, stamped and put together then glittered.

To play along create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen’s blog The Sweetest Thing and link your card so we can all see your creation!

This is truly fabulous. I can't tell you how many 50 and fabulous cards I have made this year, as this is the year that my friends are I have all turned 50. This is such a great design, and I love that cupcake paper and the glitter numbers.
