Bright Birthday Wishes

Today is the last day to enter my blogoversary giveaway!
Travelingmama just started a new weekly inspiration challenge. Every Friday she'll post a photo from her readers' travels, and you can use it to inspire your creativity.

Ever since I saw this pic, I knew I wanted to play along. Look at those fun colors and sparkly sequins!




My card came together in a snap--just a few Primas, some rhinestones, and a stamped sentiment.

Since it's a birthday card, it also fits for this week's CAS challenge. Have you played along with us yet?

Stamps: Mega Mixed Messages (PTI)
Paper: PTI white
Ink: Cool Caribbean
Accessories: flowers (Prima), rhinestones (Kaisercraft)
