Young at heart (Happy Birthday!)

For this card, I was jointly inspired by a sketch at Die Cuttin Divas and by the Happy Birthday challenge at DL.Art.  The challenge at DL.Art was to celebrate Diana's birthday, and I learned from following her blog hop that green is her favorite color, so that's the color I picked as the main color for this card.  I used my EK Success corner rounder for the corners of each layer of the cardstock and paper.

This little girl is cut from Sugar and Spice.  I had a horrible time with her face- the nose was too small, the mouth was a weird shape, and the cheeks were gigantic .  I ended up throwing out all of the parts of her face except for her eyes, and just drawing a nose and mouth on with gel pens.  I like it a lot better that way.

Her birthday hat is from Doodlecharms.  I added the polka dots and topper with Turquoise Stickles and three purple buttons. I stamped the sentiment with my Jessie's ABCs from Lawn Fawn.  No matter how many birthdays you have, what matters is how young you feel, right?  At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

Inside, I used a rubber stamp to stamp "Happy Birthday," but I forgot to take a picture of the inside.  Oops!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
