Happy Birthday Rosey Card

This Birthday card is for a family friend. She is in her 20's, so i wanted to make her a card that wasn't too  young. 

I used the following to create Rosey's Birthday Card:

 Recollections Light pink, White  and Red cardstock.
Recollections pink and red polka dot paper and pink paper from the Bright and Basic paper pad.
Once Upon a Princess Cricut cartridge. 
A Child's Year Cricut cartridge.
Rock Princess Cricut cartridge.
Stickles in Red and Pink.
Happy Birthday Stamp.
Fuschia ink from Rubber Stampede.
Martha Stewart's glitter  Carrara Marble.
Pink ribbon.
Flower sticker from my stockpile.
Round punch.

Front of Card:

I used the pink cardstock to make gate card. 
The red and pink polka dot paper to make the mats. I used the Once Upon a Princess Cartridge to  make the cut out 4You on page 52 under the phrase function.
 I then assembled and glittered the 4You and attached it to the ribbon to make a closure for the gate card.

For the inside of the card: 

On the left panel, for the Never Enough Cake, I used Once Upon a Princess Cricut cartridge on page 51 under the phrase function. 
I then glittered it with red and pink stickles and Martha Stewart's Carrara Marble glitter.
For the center I used standard mat sizes and used the flower embellishment as a holder for the gift card. I inked the edges of all mats and ballons with  Fuschia ink from Rubber Stampede.
For the right panel I used A Child's Year Cricut cartridge for the balloons in pink and red on page 57 using the monogram feature.
The red ribbon on the right panel was cut from Rock Princess Cricut cartridge on page 45 using the layer 2 function.
For the mats I cut them to size and used a round punch to punch the edges.

For the back of the card: 

I used Once Upon a Princess to cut out the tag in red on page 52, for my mark.
The envelope is made out of the same red and pink polka dot paper as the card.

Although this is a simple card, the part that took the  most time was the stickling/glittering of the two cut outs, but in the end it was worth it.  I actually made a few of them in several colors and put them in my birthday box for future use.
