Happy Birthday!

Desert Islands Crafters Challenge Blog is three today so we're having a mini blog hop!  Woohoo!  Happy birthday and congratulations, Suzi, for creating this challenge blog we've all grown to know and love!  Here's my card to help celebrate the occasion:

Our sponsor this time around is Sassy Studio Designs and my image is Rainbow Bright Sassy that I've colored with Prismacolor Pencils.  Boy, did this one ever take me back in time!  LOL!  One of my daughters used to love Rainbow Bright!  For this card I've used Bazzill, Neenah Classic Crest and My Mind's Eye Hootenanny Six by Six Designer Paper Pad papers.  The stars are punched, the ribbon is seam binding I colored with Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Barn Door and the number 3 is part of a Tim Holtz grunge board letter and number set that I painted with the same paint.  I put it all together with Beacon Zip Dry and a few pop dots.  Here's the itinerary for the current challenge:

1.  Birthday
2.  Party
3.  Cake
4.  Ribbon or Twine
5.  Add Some Sparkle
6.  Emboss It - Dry or Wet Embossing
7.  3 Patterned Papers
8.  3 Different Embellishments
9.  Favorite Colors
10. It's a Gift - Make a Gift or Gift Box/Bag

I used numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, and 8 for my card and I'm kind of stretching #2!  LOL!  That's okay, I know the thought process behind the card so if I say I was thinking party, you just have to believe me!  Here's the hop list:

Thanks for stopping by today and I sure hope you'll leave us each a little birthday love as you go!   Don't forget to play along, we want to see what you come up with!
