Rosie with cake

Hi everyone. I hope you're all keeping well and happy.

Chris and Lexi, son and fiancée, are having an absolutely fabulous time on holiday. They've visited many temples, had boat rides (some pretty hairy) and had a Thai cookery class together. Here's a photo of Chris and chef who Lexi said kept flirting with the 'Big Man'.

He is very tall at 6'9" so looks a giant in Thailand.
Here's a photo of the happy couple.

Anyway on to today's card. I've used the really cute Rosie with Cake from LOTV and lots of glitter card. I was covered in glitter by the time I'd finished making my card. So here it is.......

A close up shot of Rosie's glittery headband stars, plate and sole of her shoe.....
