Bugaboo Birthday Party - Sketch Challenge

This is my second card for the Bugaboo Birthday Challenge, but I picked inspiration from some other challenges too and ended up with stitching, fussy cutting and adding lots of glitter! The bird, a digi from Bugaboo, is colored with Promarkers and can be found here. I used glitter paper in purple and gold, a really old DP for the background, a scrap piece for the circle and the punched border. The sentiment is a birthday greeting in Norwegian, heat embossed with dark purple embossing powder. I used a purple thread for the stitching. This is far more colorful and sparkly than my usual style, so I'm not too sure about me feelings for this card, but it sure was fun playing with the sketch and I love this bird....

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1) Catch The Bug Challenges - Birthday Celebration Sketch
2) Pattie's Creations - #83 Stitching
3) Little Miss Muffet Challenges - What a fuss...fussy cutting
4) ABC Challenge - D is for Dazzle
5) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
