Birthday salute

Hello again everyone!
It's my uncle's birthday and we are going to go celebrate at his favorite restaurant with his family, and little ol' me.  A little bit of news about you'll understand why I made the card I made.  He's a retired Lt Colonel from the Air Force and so I thought it was befitting to give him a birthday salute!

This card has lots of sparkle and shine.  I am attaching two separate pictures to show the detail.  Lots of glitter paper, stickles on the cupcakes and a little bit of gloss on the shoes and pockets.  I hope you enjoy this card...I had a blast making a little bit o' red, white and blue!  Thanks for stopping by -- Margaret
