Celebrate National Scrapbooking Month!

Happy National Scrapbooking Month, Stamping Friends! There are so many fun things happening in May! There's the new May SOTM, a brand new Seasonal Expressions Idea book out, and the fabulous new Happy Times special kit and papers. Can you feel the creative mojo?
I decided to start off the month of May with this happy card based on the new Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge this week. I splattered the card base with a bunch of watercolors to coordinate with the new Calypso PML card I cut up for my background squares. I just love the colors in this new kit! I think that that stripey zip strip might be one of my favorite little bits of the new patterns.
I stamped the May Stamp of the Month cake pieces on more bits of Calypso paper/PML cards, then pieced the cake together. When I first saw these stripey Calypso sequins I literally squealed SQUEEEE! The new self-adhesive sequin packs are all in the small 6mm size. Then I topped off my adorable sequins and cake with some dots of gold glitter gel, and added some hand drawn black outlines.  

I'm linking this card up to the Seize the Birthday Anything Goes Challenge. Don't forget to pop over to Atlantic Hearts to play along with this week's sketch!
