Happy Birthday Anita - a little early :)

On Saturday at Cardinal Colours Crop we celebrated Anita's Birthday - a little early I know but we won't see her again til the end of the month.
This is the card I made for her.
I used a 6x6" version of BG Nook and Pantry paper for the background and layered with an embossed sheet of white card then a frame cut with a Marianne die.

The image is House Mouse and is coloured with Copic pens aswell as some gellyroll glitter pens.
I distressed the edge and inked before adding with 3d pads.

A few roses from my stash were place under the image and a CWC greeting mounted onto an SU punched oval which I have stickled with gold.

I made Chocolate Orange Cupcakes for the occassion decorated with Orange jellies and Lindt Intensly Orange Chocolate pieces. Here they are ready in the box to go.
Oh, I forgot to mention the edible glitter too!

A close-up :)

Believe it or not I didn't have one as I have given up sweet things for lent, especially chocolate!

Happy Birthday Anita, hope you had a lovely day and will enjoy your birthday on the 21st.
