Hand Stamped Sentiments #116 - Color Challenge

Don't these colors just make you skip with happy pink cotton candy thoughts? This week, Hand Stamped Sentiments is holding a color challenge with these 'almost' lick-able yummy colors. 
And to pre prep for our big summer move, I'm checking off cards I'll be needing this summer when I'll be without my crafty supplies, so another Birthday card was clearly in order! 

I wasn't too sure what I wanted to use as my main focal point so decided to make a collage of Happy Birthday sentiments and tiny little stamps. I added a bit of Dazzling Details to my crown and to both dots on the i's. The 2nd 'I' is kind of hard to see...it's on the little gray banner and is dry embossed with a non-SU Birthday folder.

I used this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch as the base of my card and now I can chalk another mail-able Birthday card off my list! Head on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments to check out what the DT has designed for you this week and link up to our color challenge, you won't want to miss it!

Wow Dawn, I'm impressed! You're an embossing master! I always end up with "cling-ons" or the powder from my EB! I love what you did with this! Fab layout too!
