Yummy Cupcake Birthday

Close up of the flags
 The project that I have to share is a birthday card that I made for a co-worker of mine who has become a good friend. She is going to be celebrating her birthday next week while being gone on vacation, as she has always taken vacation the entire week of her birthday as she refers to it as "The Queen's Week" saying that everyone should have a vacation & not have to work the week of their birthday...a reason why we get along as I feel the same way....I have a birthday week as well but will need to start taking a Birthday Trip on mine going forward.  :)  She loves the color purple, hence why this card has so much of it, but I added some pink to it as I felt like it was too much purple....but according to her, there could have been more.  :)  Thanks for stopping by & taking a peek!!
