SSSC279 - Happy Birthday

Saw this sketch over at the Sweet Sunday Sketch 279 and wanted to give it a try along with adding some sparkle and shine to my card for the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge and one more for the Seize the Birthday challenge with anything goes.
Here is my card:
Started off with diecutting a stitched white base from the Blueprints 25 along with die-cutting a doily for the circle base using Dizzy Doily Duo. Next went on to create this shaker circle by die-cutting Nightshift blue cardstock with the stitched circles dies and added acetate sheet on top which than was filled with Sequins and seeds from Pretty Pink Posh. 
Added a fishtail flag using Daffodil cardstock and added the sentiment from the set: Birthday Bears. Next, I pulled out the set called Whimsical Flowers from Altenew and colored them using my copic markers and die-cut using the matching dies which than attached to the card. Last but not least, I added some clear Wink of Stella to add a little bit more sparkle to the flowers.  

As always, if you haven't checked out the challenge, please stop over to check out all the inspiration.
