For Always with Chantilly Birthday Card

My oldest daughter turns 23 on Saturday.  She is now a beautiful young lady living on her own.   We got her a Kuerig for her birthday and she was so excited!  I never thought I'd see the day my 'little girl' would be excited about a coffee maker!  WOW where did all the time go?

I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch to create her birthday card.  I knew all along that I would use our new For Always (X7165B) paper for her birthday card but I wanted to add a little color and thought this pink piece from the Chantilly (X7163B) paper pack was a great fit for the sketch and For Always.

I used several new products on this card.   Stamp is Perfect Fit - Frames 2 (D1536) and the little cake in the center is from the new Perfect Fit - Birthday (B1417) stamp.  The birthday cake is mounted onto a circle punched from our new Black Glitter (Z1829) paper.  I cut the 'perfect' shape for the frame with the Artiste Cricut Cartridge (Z1790).   I added a bit of sparkle flourish from the new Sparkle Clear Flourishes - Small (Z1812).  And how about my little fabric flower?   The fabric is one of the new pieces of For Always Textiles (Z1820).  The flower was easy to make.  I cut a strip about 1 inch wide and folded it in half and pressed to get a crisp edge.   Next I used a long running stitch along the open edge and pulled the thread to make a ruffle.  I stitched the ends together and covered the center with a Rhinestone Brad (now retired).

Here is the Mojo Monday sketch:
