Hello again! I hope everyone is enjoying playing along with the CARDtober challenges so far. As luck would have it, my posting date this week falls on my birthday - 10/10, and challenge number 10. Logic might say my challenge would involve the number 10 somehow, but nope. When planning my challenges for the month, I knew this one would center on a birthday theme, and since it’s my birthday, I pulled out my favorite colors to work with when I began creating my sample.
For #10, let’s make a birthday card and make it sparkle to brighten someone’s special day! As an extra challenge to those two elements, use the color combo of teal/aqua, with navy blue and gray/silver. Sparkles can be anything shiny. Sequins, glitter, Stickles, Nuvo drops, enamel dots, etc.
Here is my sample for this week, using a shaker with sequins for my sparkle. I also inked a gray background through a stencil, used navy blue for the sentiment, and made the focus with the star in teal:
It's hard to tell, but I used Nuvo glitter drops in silver and aqua, and Wink of Stella on the word "classic" in the sentiment. The car is a cut-out. It and the sentiment are from the Heartfelt Creations Young at Heart collection. The die-cut is also from Heartfelt Creations, part of their box window die-cut set. A simple "Happy Birthday" sentiment is on the inside.

Here's a digital birthday card from me because I totally forgot to wish you Happy Birthday earlier! It might look a little familiar....
I liked your example so much I had to try it myself. I'm getting the hang of digital shaker windows - and look at my sequins!! I'm right proud of those, made from scratch and my own styles added too Oh pooh, I forgot the embossed stitching around the edge of the card...
I went in a slightly odd direction with this one, deciding that the silver pebbled paper I had tucked away could be my shiny, and then grabbing the little embossed monster on my desk to color with white and a touch of blue. I'm not sure that a black card really fits the bill, at least in my mind, but this is where the prompt took me. (And at least I finally got something done on this challenge! I'm not sure why I got hung up with this one since I love those colors and shiny/sparkles is not so hard). Looking at the card I wish I'd added the little waving hand to the monster. Next time
