Happy Birthday, It's a Celebration Card...

Hello there, folks!  Another busy week has passed and back to feature this Card I made recently.  I have colored this cute Bugaboo Image for quite sometime but didn't get a chance to incorporate her in a card.  I don't have prior ideas what the lay-out was going to be and I work by the moment so, here's what came out of it.  I used an A2 Kraft for my base card, other CS (mostly brown, orange and blue) are from my scraps as well as the DP.  I embossed a panel with my Cuttlebug using one of the folders from the Birthday Bash set and distressed it with 3 inks namely Broken China, Aged Mahogany and Vintage Photo.  I added a baby blue ribbon and stamped a couple of sentiments...the birthday ticket from Inkadinkado and the other from Studio G.  The main image is colored with Prismacolor and Sharpie markers with the addition of some orange glitters (Stickles) for added dimension.  I wanted to get that vintage and modern feel (I hope it makes sense...LOL) on this project so, hopefully, I got that done.  This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.  Pink Elephant featuring "Summer"
2.  Cupcake Craftroom featuring "Layers"
3.  Lia Stampz featuring "Anything Goes" 
4.  Mema's Crafts featuring "Anything Goes" 
5.  Stamp N Plus featuring "Anything Goes" 
6.  Inspire Me Friday featuring "Anything Goes" 
7.  Fat Pages and Cards with Attitude featuring "Anything Goes" 
8.  Desert Island Crafts featuring "3 Items from Itinerary" (Texture, Kraft CS and Happy sentiment)
9.  Jackson's Digital Expressions featuring "Anything Goes"

It's a super hot day here...The kind that just wants me to stay inside the house all day!  But then, I have a lot of chores to do and praying for strength to accomplish as much as I can.  Thanking Jesus for His wonderful love and blessings each day and giving Him back all the glory.  Hugs y'all!
