My Sisters ~50th~ Birthday Card!!!

Happy Mon.!!

Hi~ya All!

Hope all is well, and getting ready for turkey day. I have been MIA lately, getting to be a norm for me. I have been kinda busy with other things, but not forgetting about my blogging friends. Anyway, here is a card I had to finish up today for my sisters birthday on Wednesday. She is our turkey girl, each year we celebrate her birthday along with Thanksgiving. This one is special, she turns 50, so I thought I would give her a cake, since I'm not going to see her. I want to thank my friend Donna, for the help with that cake. She posted a beautiful card on her blog a while back, which gave me the idea for this card. Hers was much fancier than mine, but since I needed this in a hurry, I chose a regular 5x7 card. I'm sure she will be please with this one, and especially since I created it. I used WS for the cake,PS for the number 50,cut with DS on the Expression, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots on the corner punch, cake plate, HB folder for the background, and Birthday Wishes folder for the inside sentiment. SU kraft cardstock, dazzling diamonds, corner punch, DCWV printed cardstock, Doodlebug sugar coated (orange)cardstock, MS border lace punch, and drippy goo, which I glazed with Crystal Effects for the gloss look of the chocolate icing. I also used gold metallic cardboard, primas, ribbon, gold beads from my stash. TFL
That is all for today. Catcha soon!
