HCE04 Happy Birthday

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

Hope you have all your Christmas Shopping done??? I went shopping all day yesterday....and I'm all set and done now - wahhooo!!!

Have you all seen the *Holiday Challenge Extravaganza* over on SCS??? Fun, fun, fun!!!

I had a chance to play in today's Challenge - HCE04 - making a *Birthday Card*!!! My mother's birthday is coming up in January and what a great idea to make in for her!!!

I used the new *Raspberry Tart* DP. For the CS I chose Kiwi Kiss and Rose Red. The Punch is from SU's Photo Corners. The image is from the new upcoming Hostess Level II Set *Echoes of Kindness*. The sentiment is from the *All Holidays* Set.

To dress it up I used some Halfback Pearls. As I'm writing this I realized that I should have used some Ribbon for this Challenge - ohhhhh noooooo - LOL - I'm a cheater - LOL!!! I guess the shimmerz I added on the flower petals don't count either - YIKES!!!
If you don't see my card in the gallery they kicked me out....ooopppsss!!! I guess that what I get for not sticking with the requirements - LOL!!!
BTW - the layout is from last weeks *CCEE Monday Challenge*!!!
