Happy Birthday to Michael

Here is a 30th Birthday card I made for my brother...
Inspired by Moxie Fab Worlds Color Inspiration Challenge and Case Study Sketch Challenge.
The sentiment was stamped with Fiskars Birthday stamp and Jenni Bowlin Lemon Drop Dabber. Embellished with some Making Memories ribbon and hand stiching. The "3-0" was cut out with the Wishblade (DON'T suggest this cutter!), and painted with some Tattered Angels Caribbean Blue mist, Jenni Bowlin Soap Powder Dabber, Turqoise Ranger Stickles, & finished with Dazzling Diamonds Tattered Angels Mist.... Shines better in person ;).

Also entering in the following challenges;
JBS Inspiration, Dabbers
Craft Sentiments, Favorite Things (Dabbers & Glimmer Mist)
Drunken Stampers Birthday Challenge (Here's to 29 more years lol)

Hope you like.
