Happy Birthday inspired by #gdp381 & #fms573

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by Kim's Sketch over @ Freshly Made Sketches using the Colour Challenge over @ Global Design Project.  Please click the hyperlinks or the images below to visit the blog challenges and enjoy the inspiration!

This quick and easy card uses up scraps of cardstock with a fun and fresh colour palette of Fresh Freesia, Highland Heather and Blushing Bride.  And what's better than pinks and purples together? - Pinks & purples with Animal Print!  Use the fabulous Animal Print Embossing Folder - it's currently available on the Clearance Rack - woohoo!

***  The Trix  ***

*Trix*  To adhere the scraps of coloured cardstock straight use the lines on Grid Paper, #130148 as your guide.  Lay a 2" x 6" piece of Basic White cardstock on the grid paper.  Add glue to the cardstock layer then adhere the 1/2" strips of Fresh Freesia, Highland Heather & Blushing Bride.  Trim the edges and pass through the Animal Print Embossing Folder, #155429.  Then adhere the 2" x 5 1/2" layer to the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base.

*  Stamp the sentiment and cake from the Party Puffins Stamp Set, #155054 with Highland Heather ink on a scrap piece of Thick Basic White cardstock.  Use a Water Painter to colour in with Highland Heather, Fresh Freesia & Blushing Bride.  Then adhere to the card base with dimensionals.  Add some sparkle to the candles and cake with Wink Of Stella® Glitter Brush, #141897 and embellish with 2021 - 2023 In Color™ Opal Rounds.
