Birthday card

Hi everyone...hope you're having a great weekend so far!! My weekend is going ok so far...I'm feeling a bit sad today cause I found out that my Great Uncle Nick passed away last night (he had Alzheimer's and had hurt his hip really badly not too long ago). I think I'm feeling most sad that I'm not going to be able to make it to the funeral to say goodbye (it's about a 6-7 hour drive away and I'm not going to be able to get the time off work)but I know he's in a better place and he's not in pain anymore. RIP Uncle will be missed!

The card that I'm going to share with you today is a birthday card for my boyfriend's mom (her birthday is today and the party starts in 5 1/2 hours). I inked up Cakeabella and the happy birthday sentiment with versafine ink in onyx black and embossed them with sparkle detail powder. I coloured in the image with my Tombows and added some glitter to the cake for the icing. I used my classic and scalloped rectangle nestabilties and double ended tag nestabilities in my cuttlebug on Whisper White and Certainly Celery cardstock from SU!. The flowers are from Bo Bunny (I just bought them this past Monday when I was in the States from Archiver's) and the flower brad and patterned paper came from a card kit that I purchased from Scrapping Great Deals. I'm pretty happy with how the card turned out and I hope she enjoys it!

Anyways, I'm off to do a couple of errands and get ready before I head over to my bf's parents house to help them finish getting ready for the party. Have a great Saturday everyone!
