Happy Birthday

"It's busy", he says. That's what my hubby said when I asked him how he liked my new card, lol. But that's okay - I was trying to challenge myself to use more papers and more patterns and I'm thrilled with how it turned out. I usually only end up with two patterned papers, another fear I have (the first fear is embellishments, the second is using several patterned papers). I used Cosmo Cricket's Pixie-Liscious patterned paper and a new stamp (for me) from Claudia and Company called Birthday Emily. I found this sketch at Friday Sketchers and followed it closely to help me along with my challenge. I didn't fit in the circle layer, that probably would have put me over the top, LOL!! I'm entering this card in Crafty Pad's Challenge #105 - Something Girly.

Paper: Cosmo Cricket Pixie-Liscious, Stampin Up Crumb Cake, Bella cs
Stamp: Claudio and Company Birthday Emily
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, copics
Accessories: Glossy Accents, Stampin Up Scallop Border Punch, Stampin Up Decorative Label Punch, Rhinestones from stash, Spica Atyou Clear glitter pen
p.s. I really {heart} this stamp and can't wait to use her some more!! This card is for my daughter's friend.
