Fiesta Birthday Card

I live in the snowbelt of northern Michigan and this time of year I'm craving summer.  So it's no surprise that my Design Team submission for the CREATIVE CUTTING CHALLENGE would be something bright and colorful!!  This festive fiesta card was created using the margarita file from my MEXICAN FIESTA SVG set.  The card base is the last in my stash of this design from MME--Confetti.  Layered over that is yellow cardstock that was run through an embossing folder (Sizzix) then colored using Distress Inks (Rusty Hinge & Barn Door).  On the lime I added Stickles for sparkle (Lime Green & Picket Fence)
On the orange strip of cardstock, I double stamped "Celebrate" (Fiskars--Make A Wish) using lime green and orange ink.  The stamped sentiment on the glass is from Inkadinkado--Celebrations.
If you use SVG (or similar electronic cutting) files, I hope you'll join in this challenge.  Even if you don't, you MUST click over to see all the Birthday card inspiration from the Design Team.  I think they really out did themselves this time.  Lots of great ideas!!!
