The Corrosive Challenge: Birthday Card

Hello! Our challenge this week was to make a birthday card in honor of Janet's birthday. I used this week's sketch from SCS and an adorable Calendar Chick from Stampendous. Doesn't she just look like she's having a ball? I love that she's not shy about having her share of cake...that's my kind of girl!
The chick image is colored with pencils and accented with glitter. I used Martha Stewart's Crystal Fine Glitter on the bright pink icing; it has a very subtle shimmer and reminds me of granulated sugar. I used a bit of Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter on the party hat; it is super sparkley!
I just received my Spellbinders Big Scalloped Square dies in the mail, so I used them to cut the Melon Mambo layers. I like the looks of the larger scallops; what do you think?
Image: Stampendous Calendar Chick
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Melon Mambo, g.c.d studios DP
Embellies: Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter, Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Polar Bear"

I hope you'll have a chance to stop by The Corrosive Challenge Blog to check out the DT's creations and to wish Janet a "Happy Birthday"! Links are in my sidebar.
Thanks for stopping by today; enjoy your Sunday!
