Seize the Birthday - No Toppings

 We start another month of fabulous ideas for your inspiration at Seize the Birthday.  You can do anything that you like as there are no toppings.  
No Toppings 
  Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

We have a new Surprise Party Quest with us for March and April.  Please Welcome

Here is my card  

I made a collage of this card so that you can see the outside and the inside too. 
   This is the outside, it is a trifold card with a belly band to close it.  
The front has a lot of texture with die cute and the Happy Birthday done with dies. 
 Here is the band removed
I will list the dies at the bottom of this post. 
 Here is the inside, I used my colored pencils to color this cute puppy and girl.
