Happy Birthday!

My DIL is having a surprise party this weekend
for her 30th birthday.
As you all know, I love to revamp gift bags,
so this is a remake of a Bath & Body Works bag.
I started with the birthday cake from SYI cut @ 5"
I used the shadow and layers of the same size
and embossed each one in a different style.
The Happy Birthday is an SVG cut,
and is popped for dimension along with the candles on the cake top.
 The other side started with the coordinated pink mat,
topped with a CB embossed "happy birthday" white mat.
The scrollwork and "K" are from SB and is cut on pink and black glitter paper.
The 3D bow is a free SVG cut and I knew I just had to try it!
The bow is cut from purple glitter paper and is accented
by sprigs from my favorite MS punch.
The cute little dragonflies are punched from various shiny stock.
To finish it all off, I added coordinating tissue paper.....
and of course, her gift!
This bag is so much prettier than the picture shows -
the embossing and glitter papers really make it special!
