Birthday Mix Up

Happy Birthday to You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from SugarPea Designs
Here's my card for this month's Mix It Up challenge at SugarPea Designs.  I combined the sketch with the confetti-like look of the sprinkles coating on the juicy strawberry in the inspiration photo to come up with this birthday design.

My dotty paper comes from SPD's It's a Celebration paper pad.  I cut it with the large journal card die from the Heart Journal Card die set, then matted the dotted piece on a bright pink scalloped panel cut with a die from the Birthday Journal Card dies set. The scalloped panel was layered on to a green panel that covers most of a darker green card base.  I used a piece of the same light green cardstock and the Stitched Flags die set to cut the long stitched banner strip for the sentiment.  The "happy birthday to you" sentiment from the You stamp set was stamped on the strip in black ink.  I added it to the panel, then accented it with a pair of gift boxes made with the Birthday Journal Card die set.

Materials Used:
You stamp set, It's a Celebration paper pad, Heart Journal Card, Birthday Journal Card and Stitched Flags dies (SugarPea Designs); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Raspberry Fizz, Simply Chartreuse, and Spring Moss cardstock (Papertrey Ink); foam tape
