Birthday wishes!

Wow I have found another fun challenge to particpate in. I adore these colors, so it was tons of fun to figure out how to make it all work. I am also going to enter this for my birthday card for the Moxie Fab World Challenge. Super fun!

I went with the SFYTT challenge sketch that you see below.
Here is my card
What do you think? I reall like how this one turend out. The stiching, floss and embossing really added a fun element to the card. It was just enough white to make everything pop. I was really inspired by the Finally Friday challenge this week to stamp on dsp. I don't always think to do that unless it is for paper piercing, so this got me out of my little box for sure!
The dsp had a little bit of light green, but I went with it anyway. I hope that didn't through the challenge way off, but it worked so well that I gave it a try.
Today I am off to find a maternity bathing suit :( I am not happy about having to be in a suit at all, but Izzy needs to get a little more time in the pool on her own. She is only 3, but I would like to see her skills a little better. My Mom is going to take her to the beach this summer in the morning to help me with the baby and I want to try and make sure she is a little more prepared. I know this is crazy, but it is on my list of things that need to get done before I have the baby, so there you have it. It should also be some fun Izzy and Mommy time before the baby comes as well.
It's a good life!
