STAMPlorations Theme & Sketch challenge mid-month reminder!

Hello crafty peeps!
Just popping in with my mid month reminder for the 

For my card, I just used the sketch as my inspiration:

Here is the finished inside:

I looked through my box of UFO's (UnFinished Objects) and found this panel I made last summer. I think I was experimenting with embossing a cutting plate then using the smooshing technique to color it up. It also was misted with pearl Glimmer Mist so it's all shimmery! I trimmed it using the Crazy Double Running Stitch Nesting Rectangle dies and adhered it to my card base. For the focal panel, I heat embossed in white EP the scribbly line from the Artsy Border Maker stamp set, and also the word Birthday from the Big Greetings set. I die cut three times the Happy word die, stacked and glued them together and adhered to the panel. I glued a few sequins to
finish off the front of my card. On the inside, I used my MISTI to line up and stamp the words from the Blossom Overture stamp set.
