Happy Birthday, Kathy!

I wanted to wish my dear friend and fellow demonstrator, Kathy, a very happy birthday!   I just hope I figured out the time difference correctly and am posting on the correct day.   :)    I wanted to do a fun, special card for her and I hope she likes it.   It will be late getting there of course because I'm way behind on life and the mail to Australia seems a bit slow from Texas.   

I used the sketch from this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch and the colors from CR84FN to put together this beauty.   It has a ton of layers and dimension and just a little bling.   

Happy Birthday, Kathy!  I hope you have a wonderful day!  Eat some cake for me!  

Stamps:  Simply Soft, Petite Pairs
Ink: Versamark, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Basic Black
Paper:  Cheerful Treat hostess dsp, Melon Mambo, Basic Gray, Basic Black, Whisper White, Neutrals DSP stack
Tools/Accessories:  Neutrals glimmer brads, Basic Gray taffeta ribbon, black embossing powder, heat tool, scallop edge border punch, circle punch
