Here is a quick card I made over the weekend.  The design of the card is from Frosted Designs.  I saw the card sketch and loved that it was not only beautiful, but did not need a stamp to complete it. Every now and then it's fun to take a break from coloring images and make a card with scrap supplies.

My card is a combination of My Mind's Eye Funday embellishments and DCWV Coral Couture and Coral Couture Cardstock Stack.  The solid green background is ultra glittery, though it's tough to tell in a picture.  The gold dots and gold lines in the banners have a super shiny finish.  I thought these colors would make it a great card for either a girl or a guy's birthday.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Pile it on Challenge - Sending happiness
Frosted Designs - card sketch
Simon Says Stamps - use three different papers
More than Favors wacky wednesday challenge - Circles
Allsorts challenge - Anything goes
Card Makin' Mamas - Happy Birthday
Crazy 4 Challenges - Stripes and Polka Dots

Thanks for taking a look :)
