Hip Hip Hooray

Here's my card for this week's My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge.  I needed a few birthday cards to add to my stash, so I used the sketch to put one together.

Hip Hip Hooray card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from My Favorite Things
I used a strip of fun patterned paper along the right side of the card.  It was edged with a narrow strip of navy cardstock before I adhered it to the mint card base.  I die cut a trio of gold stars, then arranged them on the patterned paper strip, using foam tape for dimension.The "hip hip hooray" sentiment from MFT's Birthday Chalkboard Greetings set was stamped next to the patterned paper strip in sparkly gold ink.  I added a few gold enamel dots around the card to finish the design.

Materials Used:
Birthday Chalkboard Greetings stamp set, Spearmint cardstock, Die-Namics Pierced Star Stax and Blueprints 18 dies (My Favorite Things); Delicata Golden Glitz ink (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); Enchanted Evening cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Everyday Circus 6x6 paper pad (Fancy Pants Designs); gold paper (Target); gold enamel dots (Eyelet Outlet); foam tape

  2. Love that soft minty color for the base and those stars! Thanks for playing along at MFT!
