Happy Birthday with Simon Says Stamp

Hi everyone!
Welcome to day 3 of StampNation's Birthday Bash celebration.
Today's challenge is to make a Birthday card for Kids.

Simon Says Stamp is one of our awesome sponsors.  THANK YOU, Simon Says Stamp!

I chose to work with the Zig Zag Dots stencil and Birthday Farm Animals.  After using embossing paste through the stencil I sprinkled different shades of glitter onto each row to add a bit of color and sparkle.  Hard to capture in my photo.

Here is a peek of the card I made for StampNation today.
