Birthday Wishes for YOU!

I have a sweet Birthday card for a special little person in my life that is celebrating her big day tomorrow.  The Big 4!  Four years old, that is!  I am using MOJO Monday Sketch 219 for this card.  I combined some Verve stamps to create this fun background papers with all the layers in the sketch.
For the background I used some of the flowers from Dream Big, Bloom and Grow, Hope Blooms, and Sunny Days.  I also used the large leafy sprig from Bloom and Grow.  I stamped the flowers using Mememto rose bud, pale pink, and  PTI summer sunrise.  The leafy stem was stamped in Memento Pear.  For the vertical panel and circular panel I stamped the dotted background from Bountiful Backgrounds using Memento pale pink. I then use the scallop frame from Making a Statement  and die cut it out with the Rounded Scalloped Frame die.  For the focal image I stamped the heart image from Love Story  onto some more dotted stamped background using Memento rose bud.  I lightly colored with copics and added some glitter for accenting.  The star is from Always on My Mind stamp set.  I just inked up the star portion of the image and stamped inside the heart.  I glitzed it up a bit as well.  The sentiment is from Making a Statement .  I stamped in Memento rose bud and stamped the grid background using pale pink.  I added some stitching, paper piercing, some square gems, and a big loopy bow.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
