Birthday Ensemble and Paper Smooches Sparks

Yesterday was my baby's 17th birthday!

No idea where the last 17 years has gone, but I do know they went fast.
For her birthday we bought her a Flamingo charm for her Pandora bracelet, she loves Flamingos. I wanted to do something fun to wrap up her gift rather than just give it to her in the Pandora bag.  After checking out some store bought embellishments I decided that I could make my own.

Now the card I made for her does not match the ensemble but the image is of one of her favourite foods of all time. Really she would like to be a vegetarian, she does not like most meat but she simply cannot live without tacos or hamburgers! Go figure. I bought this Paper Smooches set knowing that she would love this image. She absolutely squealed when she opened the envelope.

I am submitting this to the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.

Belated Happy Birthday to your daughter (yes, time flies: my niece is already FOUR!!). Your gift of the flamingo charm is wonderful, and the gift ensemble is absolutely delightful. The sparkling cupcakes are yummy; the taco card too much fun! I, too, could easily step into becoming vegetarian, except that I love chicken...Awesome inspiration here!!
