Celebrate! Card for Core'dinations Challenge

As I was browsing Pinterest this morning I came across a challenge from Core'dinations to use this sketch and Core'dinations paper.      

 Of course I decided to play along.  Here is what I came up with!
I have a ton of Core'dinations cardstock and it seems like I'm always 'saving' it for a special project.  I really need to pull it out more.  It's so fun to use and there are so many things you can do with it.  (Note to self).  I love how this card turned out using it!!  Here is a close up of the sentiment.  I love that I didn't have to use any stamps to put the greeting on this card.  So easy!
I've had this embossing folder set for over 6 months and haven't used it.  I love the candles and think these will be fun to use on other cards and layouts.This card is a 6x6 card which is larger than cards I normally do but it turned out so great I'm sure whoever receives it will love it.  
I'll leave you with a few more closeups.  I used Diamond Stickles on the the stars to add some sparkle. So fun and easy!
A little cluster of enamel dots adds just a little more fun to this already fun card.
 I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it.  Thanks for stopping!
