Happy Birthday to You

I used two different digi sets from Clear Dollar Stamps to make this birthday card.  The week's CPS sketch (CPS252) was the inspiration for the design.

I used the birthday sentiment from the Totally Tags set and popped up the present from the Birthday Fall Critters set.  I colored the present with Copics and accented the bow and polka dots with a glitter pen.

The colors are definitely stretching my comfort zone because brights are not the colors that usually "call my name."  But, in the interest of challenging myself, I reached for this colorful Colorbok paper pack.

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific (white), Colorbok
Patterned Paper:  Colorbok
Stamps:  Clear Dollar Stamps (Totally Tags, Birthday Fall Critters)
Embellishments/Tools:  Cuttlebug embossing folder (Spots and Dots), Sakura Clear Star pen, Copic markers, Zutter Round-it-All (1/2"), Spellbinders (Circles - Large & Small)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
CPS #252 - sketch
Sentimental Sundays #86 - Die Cuts (spellbinders circles)
Birthday Sundaes #40 - Birthday sentiment on the front of the card
Stamptacular Sunday #148 - Seeing spots - use polka dots somewhere on your card
Papertake Weekly - Happy Highlights (highlight something on the card with something glittery or glossy - I highlighted the bow & polka dots with a glitter pen)

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you'll come back soon.
