Happy Birthday

This is my second post for today. I was able to finish this card which I started for the There She Goes challenge and I finished for the Splitcoast Ways to Use It challenge!
The challenge at There She Goes (TSG93) is to use three patterned papers, two buttons and a sparkly element. The Ways to Use It challenge (WT309) was to make a Happy Birthday card.
I chose this great paper from Echo Park as my inspiration, pulling the pinks and greens from there. I paper pieced the dress on the girl to match one of the papers, and colored the rest of her with copics. I sponged some pink around the edges of that panel. For the sentiment, I used some Stampin Up glitter that I've had for a while. I put some tape around the edges and put a layer of glitter over that. What a mess!! Now I know why the glitter has been sitting there!! I added some buttons on opposite corners. A final satin ribbon and bow finish the card. Thanks for stopping by today!
Supplies used:
Stamps - There She Goes Wrapped in Joy
Paper - Stampin Up Purely Pomegranate, Bazill green, Taylored Expressions white, Echo Park Little Girl dsp
Ink - Memento black, pink; Stampin Up Purely Pomegranate
Accessories - Copics, satin ribbon, Spellbinders Nestibilities, buttons, SU glitter
