Party Hat Shaped Birthday Card

Ay carumba!  I have been staying up really late now that I am on summer vacation!  But when you don't have to get up early, why not?!?! :)  Anywho, here is a very quick card that I whipped up to enter in a few challenges! :)  This card really was simple and I love making shaped cards!

Flutter by Wednesdays:  use pink, orange, green and incorporate a butterfly, angel, or fairy

365 Cards:  Mega Movie Tuesday- use Judy Moody movie poster to inspire a card (I liked the bold, fun colors)

Sweet Treats cartridge:  party hat card cut at 5.59"
Paisley cartridge:  butterflies cut at .41", .53", .76"
Cuttlebug folders:  d'vine swirls, seeing spots
Chipboard letters- The Paper Studio
Stickles- star dust
White gel pen

That's all there is to it! :)

**I am now going to put this in the Patches of Pink linky party too! :)

Hi Amy, I love your card, wish it was my birthday...not! I love the shaped cards too but haven't made one yet. :( The colors of the card really look great. Thats great that you could enter all 6 challenges with one card. I'm not that creative yet. Have a great day.
