Purple and Pink

Here is a card I made tonight that I wanted to share.  The scalloped circles are cut from one of my very favorite cartridges, LACEY LABELS.  I embossed the top circle with the Swirls folder in the Cuttlebug.  They are both inked with bronze and plum ink pads.

The slice of pie is from SMILEY CARDS.  I had not used that cartridge before.  I just forgot about it.  But i am so glad I used it.  I used chalk to add a little color and depth to the pie crust.  The filling was embossed with the circle and dots folder.  I then added a little plum ink to the embossing.  The cute little face was created with a Peachy Keen Stamp.  They are always so sweet and cute.  
The flowers were cut from the new MOTHER'S DAY BOUQUET.  I decided to glitz them up with pale pink and gold glitter glue.   The flourish and pearl embellishments are from Studio112. 
The sentiment,"Sweet Birthday Wishes" is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. And the little tag on the lower right corner is from Studio 112. I used a MS stamp to make the diagonal border.  And the ribbons are from Michael's.
The papers used are DCWV and and MY Mind's Eye.
