Midnight Madness Sketch #73

For my design card for this week I used an adorable Happy Birthday stamp from our sponsor called "A Surprise Cheer" My cute image was colored with copics and cut out several times and popped up with dimensions. Flowers are by Prima. Metal balloon brads are by Making Memories. My trim is from my stash. My papers are by the new Mindseye paper line called Lost and Found.
For my birthday easel card I used tags as a feature on the inside of my card.

This is another view that shows all of the layers
