Popsicle Birthday

Wow, its' HOT in SW Missouri!!!!  We are taking the RV (and the grandkids) to the local state park this weekend and boy am I ready!  I'm headed to the water, quickly! 

I had a little time to spend in the craft room today and here is the card I made. 
The more I looked at it, the more I thought the popsicle was kind of blah, so I decided to try out the Glossy Accents that I recently bought and never tried.  So then it became this:

I like that better!  But I do need to practice on getting it smooth.
This patterened paper is from Anna Griffin, Isabelle stack.  I love her double sided paper.  I cut a 4 1/4" x 12" piece, so it makes a 4 1/4 x 6" card.   
I used pop-dots of course!

The popsicle is cut from Doodlecharms at 2 1/2" and I used a scrap of K & Co. paper.  The circle is from George & Basic Shapes at 2 3/4" and I used a scrap of glitter paper.  I wrote "Have A SWEET Birthday" around the circle with a American Craft Slick Writer.  Those are cool markers!  You can write on anything slick with them.

I finished out the inside with more scraps and of course all the edges of everything has been inked. 

  I'm entering this card in these challenges:
