Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me!


Yes, today is my Birthday!  And, I just love the Best of Birthdays stamp set.

For this weeks Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch I challenge the Design Team to create Birthday Themed cards using the card sketch.  I have to say that I just love all the birthday cards.  I've also had fun the past few days creating Birthday Themed cards.

SPCCCS032-PJSo, in honor of my Birthday, here is my design team submission for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch featuring the Best of Birthdays stamp set!

The Happy Birthday Card is very cheery and fun with bright colors. The card base is Whisper White with a layer of Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper then I created a doily using the Daffodil Delight with the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits L which is layered under a strip of Pumpkin Pie Card Stock.  The stamped image is from the Best of Birthdays Stamp Set stamped on whisper white.  I used the Stampin' Marker to color the image with Pumpkin Pie for the words and flames while the candles and cake were colored with Real Red.  Then I cut out the image and Real Red background layer using the NEW Oval Framelits.  The flower was created using the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch with an Antique Brad in the center.  The flag is Whisper White cut out using the Hearts a Flutter Framelit and embossed using the Polka Dot embossing folder.  The colors really are fun, bright and bold!
