Happy Birthday

What a great challenge at Saturday Spotlight today!!!  It's a birthday card challenge with a twist.....
The Spotlight Divas would like to challenge you to create a nice birthday card...BUT WAIT!!! It's not THAT simple!! We would like for you to use YOUR birthstone color on your creation as well! Don't know what it is? We can help! Check out this link to find YOUR birthstone color: CLICK HERE!!
Have fun and we can't wait to see what you come up with!  

My daughter has a birthday party to attend this afternoon so this was the perfect challenge for me!  I created this card for her friend's 6th birthday.  She likes purple which was fantastic because my birthday is in June.  My birthstone in alexandrite which has always been light purple,this site shows it as turquoise which is pretty but I went with the purple.  Pearl is the stone for June as well so I added some pearls too.
How cute is this little stamping boutique image!!! I colored her with copics and added some stickles for fun!
The papers are from My mind's eye, totally girl and I went with pale plum and basic gray card stock.  The sentiment is from SU.  I added some primas and of course a few little branches from my MS punch.  I really think I need a support group for that punch, I can't make a card without it now!!!!!
Don't forget to visit the rest of the divas and leave them a note!  Have a great weekend!
