BG51, SSS sketch and CFC17: bday card

I am sharing a card I made for my niece's upcoming 18th birthday.
I used the Basic Grey "Cupcake" Collection pack and the sketch from Simon Says Stamp.
I added some pizazz to the present sticker with Stickles and Glossy Accents on the words.

Another sticker on the inside:

I am submitting this card into the following challenges:
Basic Grey #51: Anything Goes
CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #17: Use stickers
Simon Says Stamp: Use Dawny's Sketch    

Papers and stickers:  Basic Grey "Cupcake" Collection pack
Inks:  Distress Barn Door and Faded Jeans
Other:  Stickles, pop dots, punch by EK, Glossy Accents

For those of you with kids that just started back, you'll appreciate this...
I picked up the older one from school Friday and he had a COMPLETE meltdown b/c the little guy got to go to the zoo Friday with cousins.  "I never get to have any fun anymore," he sobbed from the back seat... I felt so bad.  I asked him if he wanted a another zoo trip before school started and he said no. He did get to enjoy the grandparents' pool Saturday,
but I know he'll continue to ask EVERY day at pick up what Matthew and I did that day.

Thanks for looking,
