A Birthday Card Again

Today's card was super fun to make.  I was watching a special on the Royal Wedding while I was doing it.  I really could careless about the wedding, so perhaps the decision to get finished with the card in order to leave the table was the inspiration to more quickly to complete it.  I was originally sitting at my scrap table watching Dances with the Stars and planning to watch Castle, but apparently, the network had other plans.  Of course, that is not what this is about, so back to the card.
 I used a digistamp from Miss Muffet Stamps, which I colored using some Bic Permanent Markers.  I was really surprised how easy they were to use and how well they worked.  I had only used them for my Disney Signature Books up to this point, but I may need to rethink that and invest in a larger package.  Something to think about :-)

The orange base is Bazzill and opens different than I normally make them.  It was a piece of scrap I found in the orange draw (again, I really need to post pictures of my scrap room, so you will understand).  The measurements were perfect; it was just the wrong directions.  Thus, it now opens on the short end.  I mounted the digi on a piece of Birthday paper from the 4.5x6.5 DCWV Summer Matstack, which I have had since I started making cards years and years ago.  It is perfect for card making and the matstacks are pretty reasonable when on sale.  I used some Cats Eye Ink, a few rhinestones (because I have sooooo much of those, you will probably be seeing them for years), and Stickles.  Side note, I bought a bottle of Michael's store brand "Stickles" from their dollar bin yesterday.  I have not tried them yet, but does anyone know if they are any good?  I figured for a dollar it was worth a try, right?

I am entering this card into challenges at
