Birthday Wishes...

I was so fascinated by the sketch at Moxie Fab World's - Birthday Creations Week - Birthday Sketch Challenge that I had to incorporate it in my card. Besides, Cas-ual Friday's #108 - Material girl kept challenging me about the material.  I was thinking about felt which is in plenty in my stash. But somehow it was not clicking.

Yesterday night while I was trying to sleep (actually working out ideas in my mind)... the material I will use struck me :) and it is.... Liquitex Modeling paste that I bought for my canvas painting (work-in-progress) I am really not sure if it will be considered as material or not??? Nevertheless I used it. The colors at the House of Cards Week 2 - clean & simple card were the best for my card idea. Here's my card...

To make this card I die cut the square swatches and a heart inside each. I then applied the modeling paste on each heart. Once dried I painted each heart with acrylic paints. The swatches were painted in blue acrylic paint. The sentiment was printed using Word Art on MS word :) All the pieces were stuck on the card base. Finally, sequins were added using glue dots.

The challenges are -
