Happy Birtyhday DD

 Yep its my babies birthday coming up on the 23rd.  WOW 24 YEARS OLD.  I must have had her when I was 8 cuz you know I haven't turned 30 yet... LOL.. hahaha..

Where has the years gone.  My baby is a grown adult and is teaching little kids herself.   Where's my cane!
So I have spent this week working on her card and gift.  I used the colors from two challenges ColourQ Challenge #67 and The Pink Elephant Challenge #91 - Pink, Orange and Aqua.  Here are the Color Q colors.  Both are the same color range and were perfect for what I had planed. 
My plan was to make her a card about her favorite thing.  Cooking and Baking.  I bought new stuff just for this card.  I went all out.  First I bought the cutest paper pack by Cosmo. 

Take a look at the package I bought.  

My BFF was with me and right away said "Oh that is so her"  and it is.  She should have been born back in the 50 or 60's   So vintage and retro.

I did something else that I have never done.  I think it turned out ok but I know I did not do it correctly.  I lined the envelope to match the card.  Only for my daughter!  Love you baby. 
 I used the sketch from Verve - Viva La Verve Sketch - Week 2
Don't you love those little spatulas.  I found those and they are brads by Doodlebug Design.  I almost dove over three people to get these.  So adorable. I used two different stamp sets.  The Cake stand came from a set by PJK Designs - 1001 Mom's Diner.  You will see more from this set.  And the bowl, mitt and rolling pin are from another set from Stampabilities - Baking.
Just in case you can't read my chicken scratch.  It says 
1 Tbs of Hugs
A big pinch of kissess
Fill the bowl with Love
 What does that make?
A big batch of Loved filled Birthday Wishes!
(i made it up and didn't realize it rhymed until i read it out loud)
Sorry that this post has been so long just one last thing is the envelope.  Front and Back.
Wow after looking at all these pictures I better go clean my desk.  What a mess!
