Sparkle & Shine Birthday!

Since all of our Christmas cards have been sent out, now my focus is to create birthday cards for the upcoming year.    

This week's card actually combines three challenges again.  In honor of Christmas week, Color Dare #74 on the Color My Heart blog is to use Ruby and Juniper.  On the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog, the challenge is to use paper from the Sparkle & Shine kit and add some extra 'sparkle' to the project.  Since Ruby and Juniper are colors in the Sparkle & Shine paper, it was easy to combine these two challenges and create a card using CAS(E) this Sketch #58.  

Normally, the colors are thought to represent Christmas, but I chose to create a nice birthday card instead.  The base of the card is Juniper cardstock and the fun dotted paper from Sparkle & Shine is added to the card front.  A pretty sentiment from the Card Chatter-Birthday set was stamped using Juniper ink and matted with a piece of Juniper cardstock.  Some Red Shimmer Trim, Red Glitter Gems, and decorative metal pieces add a bit of extra sparkle.  


A strip of Juniper Washi Tape was added to the inside of the card to give it a completed look.
