Happy Birthday

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #69 was the sketch below. little red wagon and sketches4all and Card Mania all had birthday challenges so I wanted a birthday card too!
I really didn't want to do flowers for this sketch and I only had what I brought on vacation with me.  Chalk It Up is on my agenda for our trip, so I had the Great Job stamp set with me.
Great Job
It seemed perfect for the sketch, so I stamped it directly on the base with Black ink.  At that point, I think I lost my mind and decided to stamp it on the polka dot paper from Confetti Wishes and fussy cut strips to accent the entire stamp! It seemed a little blah so I added the Honey stars to spice it up a bit!  As the finishing touch I added, Purple Glitter Gems, because no card is complete without bling!
 The stars are all popped up with 3-D Foam Tape which really helped emphasize the stars!
The Happy Birthday was stamped with the Circus Alphabet which was a former Stamp of the Month!  I stamped and fussy cut the beginning letters of each word!
