Birthday Sparkles

With all these Christmas cards and fiddly, twiddly bits I've been doing lately, I wanted to get back to basics and make a non-Christmas CAS card. I also wanted to go with a colour combo that I don't often use - Orange and Blue (although the backing card is more yellow as was the closest I had and it matched the flowers, lol).
I've added some sparkle to the dress using white Gelly Roll and also to the chipboard sentiment. 

Products used:
  • Cream card blank
  • Yellow-orange and blue cardstock
  • Make It Crafty chipboard words and stars
  • Make It Crafty Image - Tia Celebrates
  • Sakura Gelly Roll - White
  • ProMarkers - Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Putty, Satin, Duck Egg, Black, Cool Grey 5, Burnt Orange, Pumpkin, Amber, French Navy, Cobalt, Powder Blue, Gold, Sunflower, Warm Grey 1 & 2

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
  1. Make It Crafty - Sparkle
