Happy Birthday Sketch card

Happy Sunday!  I haven't checked in in quite a while.  The past week has been pretty busy - but fun busy, so that's okay.  :-)  I have had this past week off from work since I'm between jobs right now.  I start my new job tomorrow and I'm excited!  My sweetie and I decided to take advantage of my time off as well as the holiday and we went to the Lake of the Ozarks for a bit this past week.  We played golf, went out on the boat and relaxed by the pool.  A pretty great mini-vacation!  We're back home now and I'm back to crafting!!

This week over at Die Cuttin Divas they're having a sketch challenge.  I am in need of a few birthday cards and decided to use the sketch as inspiration.  Here is the sketch we were given:

Here is the card I came up with:

I pulled out my Beyond Birthdays cartridge (one I haven't used in a LONG time!) for the birthday present image.  I popped the star up using pop dots and popped the present up off the star using mini-pop dots but I wasn't able to get a good picture of the added dimension.

I think I'll head back downstairs for a bit more crafting!  Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card!
