Happy Birthday!

I decided to look up some of my favorite Sunday challenges today while I was waiting on the laundry. Here's what I found:

Sweet Sunday Sketch
Sunday Stamps - Black, White, Rust, and Saffron
Order of the Opus Gluei - Black and another color
Pile It On - Sentiment as focal point
Sentimental Sundays - Bling, buttons, or brads

So, I made this card:

For the color challenges, I used black with shades of beige. The 'saffron' is Bamboo, and the 'rust' is Kraft. I used my mini birthday stamp for the focal sentiment. I decorated with gold shimmer trim, gold sequins, and hemp.

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Kraft
Fundamentals: Basics
Stamps: Heartfelt Birthday Wish
Ink: Black
Other: Gold Shimmer Trim, Gold Sequins, Natural Hemp, Journaling Pen
