Hooray! It's Your Day!

Here's my card for this week's Mojo Monday challenge.  It has already made its way to its intended recipient for her birthday today (happy birthday, Michele!).

I used some scraps from an older paper pad and a new birthday themed stamp set to put this one together.  The scraps--all from a DCWV mat stack--are matted on orange cardstock and arranged on a light blue card base.  The sentiment from the My Favorite Things Birthday Greetings stamp set is stamped in lime green ink on a pierced circle die cut.  The piercing adds such a nice detail to the card design!  I matted the sentiment on a green circle for a nice contrast to the other orange mats.

After setting the sentiment panel in place, I added a cork star to the left side of the panel as an accent.  I surrounded the star with a trio of deep orange enamel dots for one final pop of color.

Materials Used:
Birthday Greetings stamp set, Orange Fizz and Sour Apple cardstock, Die-namics Pierced Circle Stax dies (My Favorite Things); Vivid Wild Lime ink (Clearsnap); Sea Glass cardstock (Avery Elle); Whisper White cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Cafe Mediterranean matstack (DCWV); circle die (Spellbinders); cork star (Fancy Pants); enamel dots (My Mind's Eye)
