Happy Birthday Tag Card

This card was made using one of the sketches at RAQ's Challenge this week on the Cricut message board.  It also uses the colors from the Ad Color Challenge which are; robin egg, bubblegum and off white. 
I wish that the sparkly would show up better in the picture, I sprayed all the pieces with Glimmer Mist, so the card has a glimmer to it.  The tags were cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge at 4 x 2 inches.  I torn some paper from K & Company Gypsy Baby paper pad and covered the tags with the pieces, it was like putting a puzzle together.   I Cuttlebugged the back ground paper with the new 5 x 7 Polka Dots folder,  then distress the edges of the  with Tim Holtz distress tool.  I love that they are coming out with larger folders as I like to make my cards bigger then the A2 size some times.  This card is 5 x 7.
The brads I had just picked up at Michael's last week and the colors fit perfectly into the Ad challenge.  I also FINALLY got an i-Rock by Imaginisce, I had been wanting one for a while but every time  I went to Michaels with my coupon they did not have any.   So I just had to use it and add some more bling to this card :).  Happy Birthday is from an older Stampin Up set.    What do you think, it reminded me of a baby card (the colors)and I was going to make it into one but didn't know when I would use it so it ended up as Happy Bday.
