A Birthday Card

Good Morning Friends & Welcome Visitors,

I use skittles all of the time.  I love them.  They are one of my favorite embellishments.  When I am working on a card and think it needs "just a little something" I always reach for my skittles.  I have wanted to enter a challenge at Double Click Connections but my card never matches the challenge and I have never had time to make one just for the challenge...but today I have made a birthday card just for Double Click Connections challenge "Use Pink"  Here is my card.

This is an SVG Cuts Card but I replaced the white background with gold foil then added some star sequins at the bottom and of course I had to have some skittles at the top left corner of the card.  The card base is BoBunny and the rest of the card is scrap paper.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Double Click Connections - Use Pink!
Dragonfly Dreams Challenge - Challenge #10 Mainly Pink
The Crafting Cafe UK. - October Challenge - Think Pink!

Thank you so much for stopping by today my friends and thank you for your sweet comments!
