a multi-challenge Happy Birthday...

Hi again! I love it when a card can combine several challenges into one, don't you!?! This one is doing just that. I'll list my challenges below, but wow, what a challenge at Pile It On this week...and the colors are awesome at The Play Date Cafe too. Of course, you can't go wrong with Pixie Dust polka dots and a great sketch from Cute Card Thursday. Wrap it all up and you get this...

I started with all these yummy papers from Webster's and Kaiser and then it just took on a life of it's own. I just love the Dahlia stamps from PTI and these are a few of my favorite colors (besides pink). I think it's a bit busy, but the sketch is quite clear here and the recipe is very long for Pile It On...3 designer papers, 2 images, 7 buttons, ribbon and something clear (my clear item is the clear crystals on the pin)! I think I got it all in there! I tried to jazz up the buttons a bit, so I added a little Crystal Stickles! The card is much more sparkly in real life!

Pile It On #33 - Let's Get Cooking - a recipe!
The Play Date Cafe #43 - colors
Cute Card Thursday #126 - great sketch!
Pixie Dust Studio Pixie Challenge #36 - polka dots
InStyle Stamps - August Color Challenge
