Happy 1st birthday

Hello all
Its been long since i have blogged about something. Though I have been adding pics and products on facebook....I haven't really posted anything here. Its new month and new challenges are announced and it makes me all excited to make something new...its fun to work within the given guidelines...kinda tests my limits and makes me think a little different.
So here is a new card which I have made to participate at the monthly challenge at Peek-a-boo designs. They have completed one year and the challenge is to make a card using red, gold and number 1 with a additional twist using stenciling or 3d Layered projects or dash of glitter or your own stamped background.
My take on this Recepie challenge is the above card. I have incorporated glitter in the form of glitter pens and chunky glittered number, gold sequins and gold microbeads, red stenciling and red cardstock and I have made my own background on the shaker window using hearts from peek-a-boo stamp set.
I am also linking this card to Paruscardmakingchallenges for this month which says a hint of gold, creative with stamps Sentiment challenge for october and A blog named hero october challege - Geometric.

Also, I am putting my card up at Lulupu october challenge - bling a ding with a stamping twist. which says we need to more than a sentiment and since i have stamped some hearts on the card....I thought to put it up for this challenge.

I started with stenciling using Itsybitsy stencil and Memento Lady bug dye ink. Then I made a shaker window using some acetate sheet and a cardstock frame. I made my own background on the frame using heart stamp from Peek a boo Place Photo stamp. I used the little heart from this stamp set as I wanted to add hearts and I thought to use this stamp set and put it to a different use than what we usually use it for.
I scribbled inside these hearts using gold pen and then added Itsybitsy gold sequins and Itsybitsy microbeads inside the shaker window. For the sentiment on the card, I tore some vellum and then stamped the sentiment using Black Archival ink pad. The sentiment set is from JustRite Grand handwritten sentiments, The number one is made using Black chipboard which I cut and added some chunky glitter again from Itsybitsy. I finished the card front using some gold and black sequins
For the inside, I didnt do much except stamp the sentiment on white cardstock using Itsybitsy Black Pigment ink pad.the sentiment is from Peek a boo Happy birthday to you stamp set. It got a bit smudged and I had to go over it with a microtip black pen.
Well that's my card. I hope you all like it. Thank you for reading my post.
