July Mix it Up Challenge

Find a favorite set from the Essentials by Ellen Hutson, and add one of my favorites from Neat n Tangled, what do you get?  Flowers that turn into sparklers for a big birthday cake evidently! 

Here is my card for the July Mix it Up Challenge:

Inside:
  . . . like this present . . . it's this card . . . my attempt at making you forget your BIG birthday!!

I adore the cake from Wish Big ... and have had such with it - Julie never minds.  I hope Miriam doesn't mind that I 'rewrote' her sentiment from Scandinavian Prints a bit ... you know a girl has to have a giggle on her birthday, right?

Delicata Gold ink puts the sparkle in the 'sparklers.'
 

Hope you have a really fun day!!  I am feeling 99.9% better, thanks for all the thoughts and 'atta girls' - your visits always make me smile ...
