Sweet 16 for Amanda!

My oldest niece, Amanda has just turned Sweet 16!!!! I cannot believe it - where does the time go? Seems like just yesterday she was a rosy cheeked little toddler running around with her dolly, and now she is a gorgeous teenager in high school & studying to get her drivers license! Boy, do I feel old! Oh well! :o( 
Here is her card that I used my Gypsy to design it using the Birthday Cakes cart for the cake, the 16 and the word sweet. The patterned paper is from my stash so I'm not sure who makes it. The card base is PaperTrey Ink kraft. For the word "sweet" i used DCWV Glitter cardstock - Border Punch Strips, which i found at Tj Maxx for $2.99. I ran the purple "cake" through the Cuttlebug using a Sizzix embossing folder, Flower Vine. I used a ton of pink Glam Rocks on the numbers and Stickles on the candle tips. The pink Mini Round Gems I found at Michael's are from Recollections line Boutique Fleur. Although they are not self adhesive, I really like them. They were very simple to add on my card, I just used a tiny dab of Scotch Quick Dry, dropped them on and they came out completely clear and give great dimension. 
Thanks for looking! Have a wonderful Saturday!
