Crazy 4 Challenges Bling & Card Patterns 83

My twin daughters will be attending a birthday party this afternoon! I think I am more excited than my girls :) I wanted to make a card for each of my daughters to give to the birthday girl. I went in search of inspiration, and I found it at Crazy 4 Challenges-Bling and from Card Patterns sketch #83.
I started with a K&Co. 8.5x8.5 Scrapbook kit - Birthday. There is not much left in this kit...several die cuts, a few stickers, and scraps of paper. I liked the "birthday girl" die cut, so I started with that. I knew my Cuttlebug Bloom Dots embossing folder would coordinate, so I went in search of orange Bazzill to match. To add some bling, I used two flower bling brads to dot the i's and mounted everything to a DCWV pink glitter card. Finally I spritzed with glimmer mist to make the whole card sparkle.
I was having so much fun, I chose another die cut, "make a wish", and I wanted to make it work with Card Patterns Sketch #83 and Crazy 4 Challenges bling. I chose some of the K&Co. papers from the kit, 2 more bling flower brads, and a Pure Innocence MFT stamp Birthday Princess. I colored her with copics and added bling to her crown. I wanted her to shine, so I spritzed the entire card with glimmer mist.

I had so much fun making these. Thank you to Crazy 4 Challenges & Card Patterns for the inspiration!
