Partly to Mostly Awesome

Happy day to you.  My post today is a birthday card I made for my niece who's turning 10.  I saw over on the Create Blog that they posted a January 2013 Card Blog Challenge and it's based on a color challenge.

I combined this with the DCWV Jan 2013 Card Sketch Challenge that's based on this sketch:

And this is the card I came up with:

(click on the picture to see it larger.)

Because of all the glitter and shiny paper (and ok, because I'm not a great photographer,) I couldn't get a great picture but this really is super cute in person.

I fussy cut the yellow sun and the duck images and used pop dots to give the card some fun dimension.

The sentiment says ... "you're partly to mostly awesome"
It's from Paper Smooches. 
So are the sun and cloud stamps I used to showcase the # 10 for her 10th birthday.
The papers are all from DCWV. 
The light gray base is from the Black Currant Stack
The "Chartreuse" green is from The Shimmer Stack
The patterned paper is from the Doodlin' Around Stack

I hope to be participating in the DCWV layout challenge too. That will probably be my next post.

Thanks for looking.
God bless.
