Happy Birthday to you!

I haven't been in a very creative mood.   I'm really grumpy and blah, just personal stuff going on.  Anyway, I tried creating to beat my funk, not sure if I am totally thrilled with the card, but just gonna roll with it.  I found this challenge at  The colors in the photo made me think of the blues, I used, and the sand, inspired the glitter. 
The background I used chalks and just dusted it across the white base.  I dug into my ribbon stash and found this ribbon, I thought it was a nice touch.  I got this adorable digital stamp from Mel Jen's Design Blog,her stuff is super duper cute! So I used my watercolor pencils to color the image, but I dipped the pencil tip in water and then colored.  After it dried I used my Martha Stewart glue pen and colored on top of the balloon color, and added glitter.  I cut it out using my fiskars shape cutter, and then used it to cut the brown frame around the image.  I used dimensionals and popped the image up.
