Make a wish...

Close your eyes... make a wish... and blow the candles! it´s almost your day Maria!
I made this card for my daughter´s birthday, she is turning 11 in a few days! I can not believe how fast time go...
this is Maria when she was 1 year old, and how is she now... she turned into a wonderful little lady, I look at her sweet face and I my heart swells with love and pride, and my eyes go watery (as usual in me, she is always asking me why I cry every time I see her pictures... no wonder.. she is adorable!).
Now with my card again. I used two cute images from Sliekje and colored them with colored pencils. I place the fairy on the fron of the card, where I made a banner by folding rectangles of patterned paper (from Jaime) and cutting them in a triagular shape, and then I strung white cord through them before attaching them with foam tape. I stitched glass beads to the front to add dimension and a bit of sparkle.
 I also applied glitter glue to the magic wand of the fairy and her crown, and rubbed with my finger some body shimmer dust on her wings. I stamped "make a" with some old alphabet rubber stamps and "Wish" is from a sticker sheet from Provo Craft.
I did the inside too with this cute mouse holding the cake. I added some puff paint to the icing of the top cake and some lace as a doily.
Here is a close up of the cake
Hope she likes it!
