Happy Birthday card!

Hiya! I'm back with a very quick card, I think I'm going to try and make more quick cards and post a bit more often instead of trying to complicate things! I'm killing time on maternity leave now so no excuses! I may even be back later but don't hold me to it! ;-)
I read on Saturday that one of my fave challenges is closing it's doors :-( so I'm joining in with Dynamic Duos last challenge - gorgeous colours too! Bye guys! I've also used this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch (simplified slightly) and the current Seize the Birthday challenge of Anything Goes.
I started this card wanting to use up patterned papers and used one whole sheet! That's not going to make much of a dent! ;-) I stamped this beautiful sentiment in Smoky Slate ink then stamped over it again with Versamark so I could add some clear glitter. I hope you like it, thanks for looking!

Sentiment - Mama Elephant 'Make a Wish'
Paper - My Minds Eye 'Cut & Paste - Adorbs'
Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'So Saffron'
Ink - Stampin' Up 'Smoky Slate'
Other - Nestabilities 'Classic Circles' & 'Scalloped Circles', silver stripe washi tape & clear gems

I'm right there with you trying to use up some patterned papers. I think they multiply in their packages because no matter how much you use, there is always so much left. Ha! Your card is so fresh and fun! I love the sparkly sentiment and the little pop of washi tape is a great touch. Thank you so much for joining us at Dynamic Duos this week for our final challenge! :)

Ps: the pic of your "classy" kitty on your sidebar completely cracked me up! Too cute!
