This card I have done for 2 challenges the first is at Whimsy Stamps challenge and the second at Montygonza's card challenges.
Whimsy have a theme of embossibilites so I have heat embossed both my little cup cakes and my dancing and partying forever friend. I also heat embossed the 'happy birthday' using moonglow powder but decided it needed a little more definition which I added in the form of shading depth using a sakura pen.
The layout is from the sketch at Montygonza's and I had real problems deciding which papers to use. I must admit I've added a layer as the card I thought it would fit it was too big for, so slight artistic lisence as with the embellishment, why have one large when you can have lots in the form of musical notes, hope it not stretch too far and remains eligible.
Sorry about the quality of the picture only my son is on a geography field trip and has my camera so I had to use the scanner to get my piccy instead and its not quite as clear as the camera but i think you can get an idea of what it looks like.
