Happy Birthday, Rock Star

I'm back with another card today!  This is for the sketch challenge over on Create with Connie & Mary and for the ColourQ challenge to use Chocolate Chip, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, and Certainly Celery.

I have to admit this color combo threw me for a loop at first.  I wasn't sure how I liked the Calypso Coral against the Blushing Bride, so to make everything go together a little better, I pulled out my sponge dauber and sponged the edges of the Blushing Bride circle and sponged the star. In the end, I love how it turned out!

The main image is from an old set called A Little Something.  I actually found this set at the Goodwill a few weeks ago for like $2!  The sentiment is from the current set Teeny Tiny Wishes.
