Happy Birthday

Hello. :o)
I am so happy to be able to share with you another card this week.
I was busy cleaning my house the whole morning and then I snuck into my scraproom in the afternoon to work on a card...life is good-calm and peaceful.
I made this card for my Oma-she turns 90 on January 2nd.
I really wanted to make this card special...so I added lots of layers and lots of details.
Here are the complete details:
The Image is a brand new Tilda from the Winter 2009 collection. I just love her with her hands in her pockets!
The cake stamps in the background are BRAND new from CTMH....the stamp set is called: Piece of Cake and it's the February 2010 stamp of the month. It has six whimsical cakes and four sentiments....perfect for birthday's and celebrations.
I colored in all my images with copics. I also added some sparkle with clear spica pens here and there and stickles.
The paper is Basic Grey-Nook & Pantry
Flowers and bling are Prima
Buttons are a mix of SU! and CTMH
Ribbon is also SU!
The pearls are CTMH
The sentiment is stamped in Cocoa and is MFT
I also used a Martha Stewart border punch and a few different nesties.
The dot embossing is made using the cuttlebug swiss dots folder....love that thing!

Thanks for stopping by-have a fabby....geesh-what day is it?
Monday ....no it's already Tuesday!

I love your card! It's so beautiful, and those CTMH stamps are the perfect accessory for her. Stay warm! I'm assuming it's as cold there as it is here, since we're practically neighbours :)
