Happy Birthday Maria!

It's my youngest daughter's birthday today, so "Happy Birthday Maria!" sending hugs and other bugs across the pond..
No, I'm not telling you how old she is... At the end of this month it's grandson Mason's 4th birthday... time flies. It doesn't seem that long ago I was blogging from a Seattle Hotel telling you all he was here!
Here's the card I've made for Maria, hope she gets it, they only have a P.O. boxes out there. 
I've used a mixture of papers. Forever Friends 'Spring Time' double sided. (lovely!)  DoveCrafts 'Tea House' glittered decoupage paper pack. (very nice) I think I won those or maybe bought them in a sale. The little glittery cakes on the right were actually cut from the packaging, too nice not to use!
The digi was coloured using Promarkers, came in an assortment of cute little freebie images from a  magazine, as were those banner shapes with the cakes on.  I've also used a border punch and a die cuts.
The papers inside the card are by Ann Lang, freebies from 2 Peas in a bucket, some years ago. I've saved them as 'purple dots' but they are definitely pink! They also came with the paper 'ribbons' I've used on the corners. I've added micro glitter t the little cakes and mock stitching using a white gel pen, (I can't sew!)  The sentiment is just a rectangle with tiny punched out flowers fixed to the ends. I need one of those punches that cut out labels, it's on my wish list.
 The cup cake ribbons, paw ribbons, flower and brads are from my stash. I've put tiny beads all glued together in the centre of the flower. Actually, I'm not sure I like the flower now... I might take it off.
The Font is a freebie, it's called DaddysGirl. Download it HERE
I've been busy most of the day walking dogs! A new one joined the pack today, she's lovely and called, Jumble...I'll take a picture next time we go out. Hopefully at this rate, I'll get thinner! (but I won't hold my breath!) That's it! Hope Maria had a lovely Birthday, she's probably just getting up! Wish we were there to share her cake!
