Sending Hugs on Your Birthday

Absolutely love this photo inspiration, so wanted to do another birthday card and join the fun over at the Sparkle & Shine Challenge and their 6th challenge along with Seize Your Birthday and "Anything Goes" and Word Art Wednesday #184
Here is my card:
Plus this was a great opportunity to try this fun tri-fold card inspired by Julie Ebersole's  from the last Online Card Class: Stretch Your Dies. I did have to alter the measurements to accommodate this word, but it worked in the end after a few tries. Also, die-cut the word and couple more times and stacked them together to pop the word up just a little more. 

Here is the view when you open this card and was so much fun playing with the new stamp set from Winnie and Walter called: In BloomLola's Bouquet stamp set designed by Joni Andaya along with the set called: The Big, The Bold and Friends for the sentiments. 

Added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and some washi tape to finish this card off and focus on the center. 
For the inside, I grabbed the set from Mama Elephant called: Photo Bomb to stamp the "Happy Birthday" and than used the set from: The Big, Bold, and Extras to add this adorable flower.

As always, if you haven't checked out the challenge sites, go check them out to see all the wonderful ideas and inspiration.
