Birthday Sparkle

Hi, this is Regina Cooper hosting this week's challenge. The challenge is to make a birthday card with sparkle!  Any kind of sparkle, such as gems, sequins, stickles, glitter pens.  

We have Sparkle N Sprinkle as our sponsor this week.  Be sure to check them out - they have FREE SHIPPING! The stamps are made in Florida and they make their fabulous glitter too! 

 Up to $15 for a digital image or set of your choice

For this challenge I made a card using Sparkle n' Sprinkle digi called Birthday Friends.  

I was able to use five of these digis on my card.  This is a very fun stamp to color, lots of great detail.  I fussy cut the bottom of the digi to make it look like they are sitting at a table and I used patterned paper as the tablecloth and made it fancy along the side using the border dies.  

Here is my card:
