A Two Challenge Birthday Card

  Another rarity for me; a card for two challenges. I had to make a birthday card for my daughter's niece, who turned 6 at the end of September. Usually I make a card based upon the theme of the party. Not knowing what it was, I geared it toward this week's MIM #85 and retrosketches #31 challenges.

 
 


 My card: 



  I used Copics (BV31, BV02, YG23, YG93) to color the party images.

  The double banner die was used as the glitter tabs. I used Glitter Ritz (Lilac, Silver and Kiwi Green). sorry for the blurred photo.

Added  the cut out from the Take Three die with the stamped candle image as part of the inside.


 I still need a tag to go with the present. (Barbie Clothes)
thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

What a great idea to use the take 3 die for this challenge. And, I still need to watch that video about the glitter tags. Your card is so festive and fun.

Such a clever card. Your punch outs are nifty, and the double ended banners are perfect. You even made the inside special. Love it all.

Great use of the take 3 die. I don't have that, but it is a great frame for separate stamps. Love the banners glittered!
