♥ Simon Says Stamp♥ Happy Birthday Challenge

I am going to be doing the Monday Challenge every week at Simon Says Stamp! This week was to create a Happy Birthday card, or tag, or something along those lines showing wishes for that special occasion - Birthday! And I have created a Victorian Shabby style Altered Greeting Card.
I started with Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime papers, and chipboard piece. Added several Tim Holtz Bits, and a paper doily, ribbons, a strip of homecoming mum "diamonds" that fell off my daughter's Homecoming mum a few weeks ago {hey, it was cute, so I grabbed it!} and since I am completely out of Inks and I needed a bit of "distress" and coloration to the stark white piece on the card, I just used Madison's Estee Lauder "Bronze Goddess" highlighter glow and it turned out so sparkly and added a bit of "rose gold" tint. So, it worked. I topped it off with the ribbon side, and Voila! My Monday Challenge Simon Says Stamp "Happy Birthday" Greeting Card!

What do ya'll think? Do you like it? Or do you think I add way too much on my pieces?
I have yet to learn that less is more. I always go overboard. The more the merrier. There are never too many cooks in the kitchen. More is more, I always say.

So there you have it - if you want to join in the Challenges, or just look at all the wonderful pieces of Art that my fellow crafters are creating - the link is below - Happy ya'll stopped by
