Birthday Cheer!

I got these gorgeous Lili of the Valley papers, called One Birdie Lane, for Christmas, and I had itchy fingers to play with them, so I had a rummage through my older stamps and decided to ink up this golden oldie, from Papermania.  It's been coloured with Promarkers, as usual, then highlighted with Star Dust Stickles on the pompoms, although the photo makes it look lumpier than it is in reality.  I stamped a sentiment with a stamp from another Papermania set and added some seed beads for the cat's eyes.
 The flowers, flourishes and leaves were all made with a variety of Spellbinders dies, in colours to match the papers.  To finish, I added some lime green Card Candi.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Crafty Sentiments - Girly
Fantasy Stampers - #27 - Happy Birthday
Allsorts - #293 - New and Cute - New paper
Perfectly Rustics - #39 - Animals
Papertake - It's All New - New paper
