Wish Big Birthday card - CQC 78, Mojo 184 and Birthday Sundaes Ch 3

Good morning all!  It's a month of BIRTHDAYS around here!  Here is another card I have to share with you.  This is one of my all time favorite color combinations and I really like how this one turned out.  I have to admit though... as I was finishing this up last night, I thought this looked a little more like a wedding card.  I liked this stamp so much.. .I had to use it... and I surely wasn't going to start over.  The person I am giving this to is "Elegant" and "Beautiful"...so it fits her personality to a tee.  My daughter just said "Mom, it will work."  :-)
I used the color combo from over at Colour Q Challenge 78   and the sketch from Mojo Monday 184.  I highly recommend both of these challenge blogs for inspiration and a challenge.  It's my first time playing at Colour Q (after paroozing it for months) and the Mojo Monday has been one of my favorite GOTO places.  I am also entering it into Birthday Sundaes Challenge #3 (Anything Birthday).  I just recently found this challenge blog through one of my new followers Kreative Kristie,  and it looks like a fun one.  Go take a look and participate!!
