What's One More Friggin Candle

glitter graphics

Happy Birthday to my Grandmother. Today she is 87 years young ( and she does not mind sharing or telling her age :0)))). (a few years before she had knee surgery "we" where trying to suggest one of those "mobility chairs'.. and she scoffed saying that those where for "Old People". and that is her spirit hehehehehe.
So I know that she would get a kick out of this card. This is Stella from Bugaboo Stamps. and this set is called "Whats One More Friggin Candle" hahahaha Love it. I my self knows that feeling with a birthday coming up at the end of this Month. For this card sticking with my "fancy folds" I made a "gate fold card".. So very easy to  make and quick too.  She is colored with my Prisma and OMS. I used my Square Nesti to cut her out with and added lots of stickles and Sakura gell pen to Sparkle up her Birthday.
This is the inside of the card along with the sentiment. I used "kraft card stock" from PTI, my DP is American Crafts,  which I used both for the outside and inside of the card. I used my EK Success Treading water punch for the inside. I don't know what other's like to use to help with the closer.. but I just use some simple "Velcro circles" that I get from the .99 cents store 

OK Well we R off to LA to celebrate this day and as I mention to visit with my IN-Laws who are only here for the weekend before they head back to New York.. So we have a full Weekend ahead of us and I have to get the kids up and ready.
