Happy Birthday!

My sister will be celebrating her birthday on March 1st, so I made a birthday card to send her.  I am entering this card in Mo's Challenge #70 ~ A Sketch.  A layout, or card design, was provided by the design team and I will use this layout to create a unique card.
This is how I made this card;
 1.  The base card is pre-made from kraft cardstock and comes with a matching envelope. This card measures 4" X 5.5".
2.  I used a piece of light pink cardstock for the back ground.
3. Next, I used scrapbooking tape to fasten three pieces of dark pink textured cardstock to the card. 
4.  I used the digital image "Bella Carrying The Cake" from Mo's Digital Pencil Store.  I love the Bella and Bronte images.  Bronte reminds me of my little red striped pit bull named Tiger.
5.  I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and a blender pen. I added a piece of vintage lace to the bottom of the card.  I then cut a piece of gold-striped vellum to use behind the image.  I machine stitched through the pink background, image, vellum and lace. 
6.  I embellished the card with three paper flowers and a glitter heart from Martha Stewart.
7.  I fastened the card front to the kraft base card with scrapbooking tape and glue dots.
This card was fast and fun to make.  I hope my sister has a very happy birthday!
