Peek a boo Birthday Card for Imagine That March Challenge

Digi by Imagine That; Happy Birthday sentiment is a CTMH stamp.

Imagine That digis by Kris supplied this adorable Kitty in Flowers image for its March Progressive Challenge.  There's a big 1st birthday celebration in progress on the Imagine That blog with a fun Blog Hop March 10-17th.  And there are some great new birthday digis which were just released for the occasion.  Take a moment, read the rest of this post, and then head over to their blog for a chance at some great prizes.
(This is an unsolicited and unpaid advertisement.  I just like Kris's digis and I'm sure you will too.)

Returning to my blog post for today.....

I've been using this striped glitter paper on several cards lately because the colors remind me of Spring even though our weather is still far from Springlike.  The snow is slowly melting.  We even found our Feb 2nd newspaper earlier this week.  It had been covered with snow all that time.   And I must give our carrier credit - it was wrapped in plastic and totally dry.  Amazing.
I applied adhesive tape around the outside edge of the glitter paper and adhered it onto the card base.  With my Spellbinder beaded circle die, I cut the aperture through both layers.  After resizing, printing and coloring the digi image,  I cut that with the same die and attached it to the inside of the card.  I cut a few more die cuts from matching green glitter paper and pink CS for the corners and sentiment, respectively.    A little bling here and there and this card is ready to be submitted to the following challenges:

Imagine That March Challenge - Kitty in Flowers 
Alphabet Challenge  - "C" is for Country Flowers
Cut It Up Challenge #40 - Include some Green for St. Patrick's Day or Spring
Jellypark Challenge - Pretty Pastels 
Stampin for the Weekend - Anything Goes
Art Impressions Challenge #131 - Take a Peek/Window Opening Cards
Digi Stamps 4 Joy Challenge #87 - Add a Birthday Sentiment 

And I still have the 2 beaded circles I cut from the front of the card.  
I'm sure you'll see them eventually.

Now I'm off to do the Blog Hop at Imagine That.
