An Early October Birthday

Time to turn over a new fall leaf. I made a birthday card last night for my neighbour whose special day is today... Happy Birthday, Ellen!
I really like the Stella Rose paper
by My Mind's Eye. So I started with
a base and began to build. Bugaboo's
freebie this week, was just what I
needed to get my start. Copic markers
were used to colour and glitter was
added to the candle, stars and cake.
Glossy accents was used on the balloon. I outlined the sentiment with the Sakura clear pen....I liked the bit of glitz. A  button and some twine was added to the star. I hope she likes it! I will enter this card into the following challenges:
