a Little Birdie told me...

I designed this cute card in my Gypsy for my sister's upcoming 40th birthday! I used the Sugar and Spice cartridge for the nest and the shape (that stamp is on) and used dollar stamp from Michaels for the sentiment. For the egg, I had to decide between white sparkle paper or Papertrey Ink Rustic white?!?! As you can see, I went with the sparkle! The card is Paper Trey Ink Kraft cardstock and I added a pretty layer of this bright sort of auqa blue polka dot paper all the way to the horizontal edges, and made 1/4 inch brown paper strips to go over it. I added little pearls (light blue and white) to the top and bottom edges and finished the dark brown layer of the nest with some Cinnamon and Diamond Stickles. I have yet to finish the inside of the card sentiment.... I was thinking since this is her 40th b-day I would write something like "you will now be 29 forever???? or something to that effect.
Ladies, I would love some suggestions for the inside wording! thanks!
My sister had told me she recently she wanted some hanging earrings - so i have bought her 3 pairs and also 3 pairs of shorter ones. I will probably end up making her a couple more pairs too!
