I was inspired by the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #206, Simon Says Stamp: Get Krafty, and Dynamic Duos #89 to create this feminine birthday card today using Fresh Squeezed Stamps, Everyday Expressions and Friendly Folk!

The sentiment was inked up in a leafy green ink and stamped over some mint green patterned paper while the star was stamped three times and fussy cut to create a sparkle effect from the hand-rolled candle.  Lots of yummy birthday layers and textures went into play on my card a little splotchy ink and a few scattered Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
