Greeting Farm Birthday wishes

This card won the Challenge at Simon Says Stamp!!!!!

Just one more post from me tonight. Here is a card I created using this adorable Greeting farm image. A friend of mine sent me this image, so I am not even sure of her name, but I think she is adorable.
I used the sketch from Creatalicious Challenges for the design of this card. I kept the sketch as it was posted, yet my flowers cover up a bit of one of the squares. I used my nesties labels 8 die to cut this cutie out, and then distressed the background with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I cut the sentiment label out on my cricut, then added the sentiment from my Anya Says stamp set. I then also distressed the sentiment with Dusty Concord to match.
I colored this cutie with copics, but she has been sitting in my stash for a bit, so I am not exactly sure what colors I used. Sorry kids, I should have written it all down, next time!
There is a TON of sparkle on this card, but it did not photograph that well. I tried to show all the bling and shine, but it just does not do justice in the photos. I glimmer misted the white prima flowers with Lily pad, Sage, and Pashmina Glimmer mist. I then added Prima bling to their centers for added sparkle. I punched out the butterflies with my Martha Stewart Monarch punch, and added stickles to them. I also added stickles to the images dress and hair bows.
There is bling corners added to the left side, top and bottom, of the card for just a bit more sparkle. I hope you enjoy this sparkly birthday card. I had a blast creating it!
