Grrrrrr day with my glitter glue!!!

Do you ever have one of those cards that you thought about for a couple of days, totally loved making and then get a grrrrrrrr moment?!!!!
Well, that happened to me yesterday!! I made a card that I really like, its a little bit cheeky for my lovely friend ( who is also a little bit cheeky!!!!) I used my pink petticoat cheekies and decided I would glue the frills with irredescent embossing powder to make them sparkle (oooh pretty thought Lou...) it seemed like fab idea to finish it off. I had already glazed the basqe and pants to glitz them up a bit so though this would be a quick finish, I popped some tacky glue on the frills and put the embossing powder on last night thinking it would be dry for the morning, (sharon's birthday today....me thinks i cut it too fine with cardmaking!!!!) how wrong was I?!!!!!! it was still wet when I got up for work this morning and I needed to take it with me but I couldn't.
I felt so bad that I hadn't got it done in time but above you have the piccy of the offending card!!!! totally my fault.
I used my george and all mixed up cart (in shadow for the base and normal in the pink) for the card base and then my glittery sticky paper for the letters for a bit of girly blitz!! I then cut a slightly smaller rounded square for the front mat on the card and ran it through my cuttlebug with the happy birthday embossing folder (it looks really cool in real life but not so cool in the photo, as does the evil glittery frill,grrrrrrr, this card is jinxed!!!) and added a satin black ribbon and bit of adhesive lace with a little white inking on. Little bit of doodling on a couple of the corners with a metallic gel pen.
It says 'birthday suit?!......' on the outside and on the inside it says 'oooh la la!!'
So, sharon I am sorry this was late hunny but it is cute!!!!
Thankyou for popping in xxxxx
