I can't believe my baby girl turns TWO a week from today. Seems like just yesterday my little Brutus came speeding into our lives. She was a week early, came out in three pushes after 4 hours of labor, started walking at 9.5 months and hasn't slowed down yet! (Much to mommy's dismay.) Brutus has added a whole new level of chaos to our lives on ALL levels (her big sister was the calm, centered child...B is COMPLETELY opposite - hence the nickname). But I wouldn't trade any of the years she's shaved off my life due to frequent heart-attack moments for ANYTHING! :)
Anyway, this is the birthday card I made for my sweet girl. I am in LOVE with it!!
I created my own "twine" by taking apart two strands of embroidery floss, getting them damp, twisting them together, then leaving to dry. Next time, I might just keep the two strands whole before twisting them together because I like the thicker look better, but this isn't bad for a first try! The Imaginisce Enchanted collection works so well for anything girly related. I cut out the cake and candles using my Silhouette. Let me tell you...next time I will cut out BIGGER images because working with those tiny, delicate candles was definitely a challenge. Lesson learned! I sprayed the top layer of cake with Cadillac Pink Glimmer Mist. I think everything goes so well together...even the blue ribbon with pink polka dots!
I had fun making this card and I hope she enjoys looking at it when she gets older.
