Glittery Birthday

Don't you love a little sparkle every now and then? My best friend is a girly girl and I knew she'd love a little glitz. So I decided to use a sheet of Stix2 double sided adhesive in my die cut machine with Sizzix "Flower Layers #3". Then I added some micro beads and glitter (Stix2) and layered them up. I think she liked it.The Paper Trey Inc sentiment was a little too long for my Word Window punch so I used a trick I saw online to make it bigger. Here is the link to the tutorial. The layout is an old standby. Gotta love those!
Here is a close-up
