Magic Birthday Card

I haven't been able to be around in blogland much this past week, but I will try and do a catch-up tonight. I got myself an iPad yesterday - I think it's going to have its permanent home in my handbag so I can bring it everywhere - lol.
This is the card I made for hubby's birthday this year. I used two images from QKR - "Magic Card" on the front and "One Year Older" for the inside. I colored the images using Promarkers and added some dry glitter to the sentiments on his panels and gold glitter glue to some of the stars surrounding him.
For the front I used DP and an embossed paper with stars. I sanded the paper to allow the stars to be more visible. I die cut a couple of stars from gold glitter paper and a circle of corrugated cardboard, and finished it all off with a piece of twine.
For the inside I used the same colors and some die cut stars, and the birthday sentiment is placed onto a piece of washi tape using peel off stickers.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Crafty Sentiment Designs - Birthdays
2) Sweet Stamps  - #148 Glitter
3) Card Crafter's Circle - # 105 - Golden Days  (stars and peel off stickers)
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

How fun is this card, love the sentiment. All your embossing is wonderful and the added stars gives a nice touch. The inside turned out wonderful.
Super gift a new iPad and they are so much fun, can't blame you for wanting to take it with you every where.
