Penny Black and More Guest Designer

Good morning!  Happy Sunday!  Hope you've had a good weekend so far!  It's been relatively quiet here with a bit of time for catching up on things.  You are probably surprised to see me on a Sunday!  I'm here with something really fun today!  Based upon entering this card, I was invited to be a Guest Designer for March for the Penny Black and More Challenge!  Of course, I said yes!  The theme for the March challenge is "so sweet".

Here is my "sweet" card:

My card base and mats are SU Strawberry Slush and the patterned papers are from the October Afternoon Woodland Park 8x8 pad.  The fun image is Let's Party from Penny Black.  I stamped it on Hammermill Digital Cover Stock and colored it with my Copics.    I added a bit of Yellow Stickles to the star and the candle.  I colored in a sky and some grass with my Copics, too.  The sentiment is computer-generated. 
Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by! Check out the fun challenge over at Penny Black and More!  I'm sure the team would love it if you'd play along this month!

I am entering my card in the following challenge:
Seize the Birthday (anything goes)
The Corrosive Challenge #194 (animals)

Have a wonderful day and see you soon!
