Hello! I have a cheerful birthday card to share with you today.  I made this card featuring a cutie from The Greeting Farm for this month’s Inspiration Emporium challenge: celebrating birthdays!

I was in the mood for color so I pulled out some Hootenanny designer paper from My Mind’s Eye and based my coloring of the image on it.  That is my usual routine: pick out an image and then the paper and then color.

I added Glossy Accents and glitter here and there.  The “happy birthday” sentiment is from the Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler stamp set and was fastened in place using a memo pin and foam dimensionals. For a bit of texture I added mesh ribbon and rhinestones.
