Birthday Challenges

My son just had a birthday so I thought I would check out some sketches and challenges for inspiration.  
I created this card to go along with a couple of challenges which I will list below.
 First, I used a sketch from Sieze the Birthday sketch challenge.

The theme at 10 Minute Craft Dash is stars so I added those to my card and timed myself.
whew, it was close one with only seconds to spare since the first try I cut the circle shape in Kraft and decided it did not have enough contrast so I made another in white.

and finally my card...

which I am also linky up to Stacey's Birthday Linky Party.

That's a lot of partying for one little card!
All supplies are Close To My Heart, except for the sequins which were gifted to me.

Super cute birthday card. Love the sentiment with the tiny stars and the paper stars. :)

Does the timing include cutting pieces and stamping or just assembly? At any rate....great job!

Just the thought of the time limit gives me anxiety! ;) Love what you've done with this, Lynn! Loving the scattering of stars and sequins!
