Sweet Sixteen!

Good morning friends!
The school year is winding down and it has been a bit busier than I am used to! 
My crafting time has been a bit limited, so I have to be sneaky about fitting it in here and there. ;)
I did manage a birthday card for my nephew's upcoming 16th birthday.  I used new products from Whimsy Stamps.  I stamped the cake and numbers using the new Make a Wish Stamp set.  I colored it using Copics, added glossy accents, glitter, and sprinkles. I used the coordinating die set to cut the images out. 
I wanted the background to be fun and colorful, so I used the new Micro Patterns Clear Stamps.  I think this is such a fun way to make your own patterned paper! I layered my images using Crafty Foam Tape.   As a final touch I added a sprinkling of stars.
Speaking of birthdays, this gal of mine just turned 26! My mom and I got to see her for a bit last Saturday.  On Sunday (her actual birthday) she celebrated with her house.  Pizza, cake, and presents.  They Zoomed with me so I could sing with her house and watch her open her presents.  I can't wait until the day she can come home for a visit.  I want to hug and squeeze this girl so much!!
Thank you for stopping by today! Be sure to pop by Whimsy Stamps to see all of the new products!
