Happy Birthday Olivia

 It's a big day here as Olivia celebrates her birthday and has also gone into verbal diarrhea mode with the excitement. Heaven only knows how her teachers have coped with her today.  Her mouth hasn't stopped moving since yesterday evening except briefly to sleep.  I'm so pleased for her and only hope that I can keep up with the pace this afternoon after school.  
Above is the card I made for little bro Charlie to give to her.  It's pink, girly but funky too and just what he wanted for his big sis. I'm really glad my husband persuaded me to choose this as one of my free saleabration sets as it's proving to be fun.
This on the other hand is very funky and she loved it when she opened it this morning.  I've used stars everywhere as she is our little star!  The image is from a retired US set in my stash.  The broadsheet alphabet is just perfect for this sort of project as it's so flambouyant just like Olivia. I punched stars out of melon mambo and then stuck them close together on a matting layer of mambo which I then whizzed through the big shot using the top note die.  I've layered it with matting layers and added it to my wheeled back drop.  More stars and a bit of dazzling diamonds to set off the sentiment. 
I'm sure she's having a ball today which will continue tonight.  Hope you have a great day too!
I'm also entering this in the Corrosive Challenge Blog where they've asked for summer colours.  Also the Crafty Hos' Challenge where they say "Let the summer fun begin".  Finally KB Cute Monday Challenge which is bright colours.

My stars, this is cute! Lol But seriously, what an adorable card! I love that retired image and how you used the stars as a common theme in all your details! Thanks for playing along with The Corrosive Challenge for "Summer Colours"! :)
