Who's That Birthday Girl?

I had to make a card for a friend's 50+ birthday and I decided to let her be 49 again. Lol. I used My Favorite Things (MFT) stamp set called "Who's That Birthday Girl?" and, here we go again, the papers that I have leftover from some baby albums I'm working on. (Even the frosting on the cake came from pieces of patterned paper.) The crochet trim is also a new die from MFT. I made the sentiment into a gift box using pink bakers twine. And the bling that I picked up I picked up in large quantities at a clearance sale gave just the right weight to the top of the card.

Frugal tip #45: Don't pigeon-hole your patterned papers. For example, sweet, soft baby papers can be used on feminine cards, too. 

Other Deets:
DP: All in One Paper Pad (K&Co)
C/S: Kraft (SU), White (MFT)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Copic markers, Antique linen distress ink (Ranger)
Other: Bakers twine (The Twinery), Rhinestone stickers (Mark Richards), Sparkles (PSX Design)

Thanks for looking and come back tomorrow for the Unity FWF blog hop!
