Happy Birthday, Friend!

I made this card for a dear, sweet friend's birthday (a late mailing...) and I see that it can qualify for a few challenges!  Bonus :)
I was quite anxious to use this new to me stamp from Concord & 9th and I have so many colour combos swirling in my head.  I first white heat embossed onto bristol card.  The detail on this stamp is amazing and I used a WOW superfine white EP.  It worked like a charm!
I used my Zigs to water colour the tiny images.  The Happy is a Memory Box die that I cut from the same bristol and again applied the colour with Zigs in a gradient fashion.  The birthday is from Winnie & Walter and the Friend is a PTI stamp.  The main panel was cut with an Avery Elle Elements die.  
Happy to finally send this card out and it is also on it's way over to the following challenges.  Oh, Happy 4th of July !
