Perfect Sentiments Challenge #74 - Sweet Treats

Last week I had three birthday celebrations. I was actually supposed to go to a fourth one for a grandson until I got a bad migraine. I heard that 17 kids came to the skating party in a very crowded skating rink-definitely migraine atmosphere. My daughter was surprised because many of the kids weren't invited - the party was spread among kids on his baseball team. Obviously, birthdays are big events for kids! What warmed my heart the most was that my grandson asked after the party where I was. He missed me! That's really sweet for a shy seven-year old boy who was just overwhelmed by lots of friends. It didn't matter to him that I'd come down on his actual birthday to do things with him and to bring his gift. I made this card with his sweetness in mind.

Our challenge at The Perfect Sentiment this week is:


Our sponsor is Meljen's Designs who will have 4 free digis for one lucky winner.

I used one of Meljen's Designs birthday images that is just too cute! I thought this image was perfect for little boys with that mouse coming out of the cake! My color combination also had my grandsons in mind. The Close To My Heart sentiment that I used was perfect for our Sweet Treats challenge.

I placed Bitty Blue green sparkles on the dots that were on the digi image. Stars cut from silver glitter paper finished the sparkly effect.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
City Crafter #154 - Happy Birthday!
Digital Tuesday Challenge #205 - for Boys (using a digi)
