Happy Birthday!



Hello!

I enjoyed the process of designing this card since it's been well over a week since I've had the opportunity to get crafty!

See that pink Happy Birthday layer?  I bought a package of them at Paper Source.  They are letterpress panels and perfect for layering on cards.


All the patterned paper is older Crate, Peppermint & Paper Heart.  I stamped the Paper Smooches sentiment from, Sentiment Sampler, in Fresh Ink Provincial Gray so it wouldn't take away from the overall design of the card.

That Coffee Cup Stamp (yes, I must have a bazillion) is from Impress.


I wanted to use my enamel dots but can't seem to find them...you should see how many boxes I'm surrounded by, seriously.  The Freckled Fawn sweet heart veneers were a perfect substitution!

I was inspired by the latest Seize The Sketch:


Don't you love Stacey's sketch?

  2. Oh, I totally agree you can never have to many coffee cup stamps! :)

    Those tiny wooden hearts are awesome! I can't find any wood veneer shapes around where I live. I guess I'll have to do a little online shopping.

    Love your pink and red coffee cup card! The way you repeated the red gingham patten on you cup holder looks great!
