Flyin' By to Say Happy Birthday

Flyin' By to Say Happy Birthday card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud
Here's my card for the current challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. I used the layout's long vertical panel as a cloud filled background for a critter from Lawn Fawn's Really High Five stamp set.

The set's bear and balloon images were colored with Copic markers then cut out with my Scan 'n Cut machine.  I used a cloud stencil and a blue distress oxide to create the cloudy background before adding the cut out images with foam tape for dimension.  The panel was matted on yellow cardstock, then placed over a floral patterned paper panel adhered to the center of a rose card base.  I stamped the set's "flyin' by to say happy birthday" sentiment on a narrow yellow cardstock strip that matches the mats beneath the panels on the cardfront. The stamped strip was placed over the two panels using foam tape for dimension to finish the design.

Materials Used:
Really High Five stamp set, Spring Fling 6x6 paper pad (Lawn Fawn); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); Broken China distress oxide (Ranger); Regal Rose and Barely Banana cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Cloud stencil (My Favorite Things); foam tape
