CWC Craft with Cutters Challenge- Use a Flourish

Today's challenge is all about 'the flourish'.  I needed to make a special birthday card for my daughter, who's birthday just happens to be today.   I found this cute little cake with a flourish on the Imagine cart Yummy.  I also printed and cut out the extra flourish for the behind the cake and the inside.  The pink and blue background shapes were cut from Elegant Edges and embossed.  I added some Stickles, ribbon and a pearl.  
The inside sentiment is also from the Yummy cartridge and has a hidden meaning.  
There is a really popular diaper bag company that makes its home here in Ventura, California.  They are very expensive but several times a year they have an outlet sale here at the factory.  Well several months ago I went with my daughter and fell in love with this beautiful purple tapestry bag.  They call these tapestry bags "cake bags".  My daughter and I both loved it.  She ended up letting me get it and she got another bag.  Well I tried it out one time taking the train and decided it really didn't work for what I wanted it for so I have decided to give it to her for her birthday.  She is going to be really surprised. and excited.  So since this is called a cake bag the sentiment is perfect as in "You Take the Cake".  
Hope you enjoyed my post and will stop by to see the other designers.
