Birthday Card Challenges

I decided to search out a challenge today and found the perfect one at 

Challenge #52 Happy Birthday
Create a birthday card or project.
(Happy Birthday to Robin at FCCB!!)

I also entered the card on Birthday Sundaes first challenge.

I decided to make a card for my Mom, her birthday is coming up soon. I was inspired by waking up to find Tim Holtz demonstrating his fab products on HSN this morning! 

Here is a list of products that I used:
Happy Birthday cut from George and Basic Shapes 
(I trimmed off the tags on the H and the Y)
White and black Recollections cardstock
Tim Holtz floral paper from Lost and Found stash
Tim Holtz clear stamps
Distress Inks in the following colors-
Worn Lipstick, Shabby Shutters, Walnut Stain, Mustard Seed, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot
Diamond Stickles on the Crown
Tag with Fabric ribbon 

I had fun making this card. I'm sure there will be more to come-spring is birthday season in my family!

Happy Spring to everyone!!
