Sending Love & Hugs on Your Birthday

Joining a new challenge site this week with Seize the Birthday which looks super fun where you can add toppings to your card as another option. Also, joining the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge with Anything Goes theme as well.
Here is my card:
Both of these challenge sites inspired me to have fun and just create, so my mission was to make a Happy Birthday card. Yes, I know it's not my normal, but it's about creating and have fun in the process so I pulled out my distress ink pads and blending away. (names are listed under supplies)

Also, since I was playing, I added some water and Perfect Pearls in my mister which added a very nice shimmer to the card but so hard to capture in the photo. 

Here I used some new colored card stock again along with the Hearts Cover Up Die-namics. Love the way these hearts pop up. Since the hearts had shimmer, I decided to use my Pearl White Shimmer card stock along with the Horizontal Die-namics to lay across under my sentiment.

I'm sure most or all of you recognize the sentiment which is from Simon Says Stamps and it's the die-cut "Sending" which I used black shimmer card stock. Last but not least, I added the rest of the saying by using the stamp set: Sending and Wishing. 

Again, don't forget to check out these challenge sites if you haven't already.
