Reverse Confetti SFYTT Challenge!

I have made a pact with myself that every week I'm going to try to play in at least one challenge (aside from the ones I'm lucky enough to be a part of).  There are SO many fun and inspiring challenges out there and I'm always in need of birthday cards to donate to our church.  I figured this would be a good way to have some fun and make a ton of birthday cards in the process.  I'm not a mass producer, as much as I've tried, so this should really help me keep my creative juices flowing.  ;) 

The first challenge I decided to try this week is the amazing sketch challenge at Reverse Confetti.  I know you all know I love sketches...I've only said it a million and 2 times.  Ha ha!  I especially had fun with this month's Sketch For You To Try challenge.  I love how I have a whole month to play with this sketch and I just might be making another card or two with it.  Here's what I came up with and the sketch:

I used a fun new pattern paper pad for all the fun colors on this card.  I knew I wanted stars and the Stars Pretty Panels was just calling my name.  So, I cut my two rectangles of pattern and layered those on a navy base.  Then I cut my Stars Pretty Panels from a minty turquoise (?) paper and layered that over a bit of vellum to ensure my stars really popped!  Then I stamped my sentiment (from Folded Tag Sentiments) in a bright pink and added two fun shiny banners behind it before layering it on my star panel.  Finally, some enamel dots and star sequins add just a touch more sparkle to this fun birthday card.

Thanks SO much for checking out my card.  I can't wait to play in this fun challenge again!  Thanks Reverse Confetti!
