Happy Birthday to me!

My Birthday was this past weekend, so I thought I'd show you a LO I created for a previous birthday party:

Bless her, my mum made that cake for me yearly until I was grown, and occassionally afterward. Pound cake,with a layer of whipped cream on top, then covered with tinned mandarins. I suppose those little oranges would have been quite the treat in 1976 Belfast, N. Ireland!

Cricut cartridges: Storybook and Graphically Speaking
Paper: solid cardstock and K&Co Wild Saffron
Liquid Pearls
ATG adhesive
matching brad
Colourbox ink pads
Martha Stewart "Happy Birthday" ribbon
Spellbinders: Blossom
Tattered Angels glitter mist: Sunflower

To make the grunge flower:
Use spellbinders to cut 4 different-sized flowers in coordinating cardstock. Mist lightly with water, then crumple together. Allow to dry slightly, then uncrumple and layer largest to smallest. Attach layers together with a brad, then fluff and mist with Tattered Angels. Allow to dry.

Enjoy! (I think I might make one of those cakes for my girls this weekend!)
