Happy Birthday!

Hello and welcome to Studio 5380.
Thanks for stopping in for a visit!

I am working towards my 2016 crafty goal of creating more "just because" cards. I would love to have a stack of birthday, thinking of you, sympathy and baby cards on hand so that I'm not scrambling to put something together when I need it.  Another crafty goal for the New Year is to join in on more challenges to get myself out of my comfort zone and maybe think outside the box a bit.

So, today's card is a combination of those two goals - a birthday card for my stash and an entry into the current Sparkle and Shine Challenge:

I used all sorts of products and made a huge mess while working on this one, but I'm pretty happy with the results and I love the sparkle!

Here is a list of products I used to create this card:
* Silver Sparkle cardstock by My Favorite Things (card base)
* Tattered Angels Glitter Mist in Pearl (spritzed on the white layer and on balloons)
* Birthday Wishes & Balloons stamp set by My Favorite Things (embossed in silver)
* Party Balloons die set by Lawn Fawn
* Distress Ink in Mermaid Lagoon and Wilted Violet (balloons)
* Aquamarine sequins by Pretty Pink Posh

I'm off to link up my card at the Sparkle and Shine Challenge - Number 21.

Thanks again for stopping by!
Have a great day and I'll see you soon...
