Shiny, Happy Birthday

The challenge this week is at For Fun Challenges is sparkles. I love sparklies of any kind. DH calls me a magpie. He laughs that it's a good thing I teach because I still love my glitter and paints. There is some truth to that!

I was actually planning to make another card but found one 6 x 6 sheet of the background paper and one of the cake medallion paper in my stash. They were part of a blog candy I received last summer. Score! Don't you love it when you "shop" in your own stash and find the perfect item that you don't even know you have? Okay, that didn't sound right. I hope DH never reads this or I will be permanently cut off my craft budget!

The photo may not really show it, but there is lots of sparkle in real life. The pale pink is a shimmer brazzil paper. The raspberry are scraps from my cousin's shower. (I will forever have these scraps!) The both sheets of the DP are accented in glitter. The scalloped circle was cut out with my nestie and then I added dots of Cotton Candy Stickles to it. Then entire scalloped circle is popped up on some recycled rubber.

Challenges This Card Meets:
Challenge Up Your Life - Clean and Simple (While the DP looks busy - the layout couldn't be simpler!)
Creative Inspirations - Celebrate
Pear Tree Designs - Free For All
Stamp Something - Anything Goes
