Quick birthday card

I went over to a friend's house to stamp the other day, which is quite challenge for me since I like to have all my "stuff" right there when I'm stamping! She's a relatively new stamper, so going to her house is little like a entering a limited-supply challenge. But that, to me, is part of the fun! She has different stamps and different tools to play with, and it gives me a chance to stretch my skills or try different things. Anyway, when I was visiting her, I needed to make a birthday card for a co-worker. I had brought along some paper and a few tools and accessories, but no birthday images. So I borrowed this cute image (not sure who makes it) and the sentiment (from Hero Arts, I think) and got to work. I colored the image with my friend's Creative Memories markers and then added some sparkle from an atyou Spica glitter pen. It probably needed a little something more, but I kind of like it as it is!
Stamps: unknown
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, CM markers
Paper: regal rose, gable green, basic black, neenah classic crest white
Accessories: Atyou spica clear glitter pen

Less is more . . .I need to stamp that on my forehead. :) I think it is cute as it is, a shame the sparkle doesn't show up more clearly when you use a spica . . . very cheerful card.
