A Friendly Happy Birthday

Today's card is for a very good friend that I met when my sons were in elementary shcool.  We don't see each other very often but we always remember each other's birthday.  I'm submitting it to two challenges:  Mojo Monday #437 and Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes.

Base & Base Layers:  Card base is Mint Macaron card stock.  The next layer is Basic Black card stock with Shimmery White card stock on top of that.  The strip of designer paper is from the It's My Party Paper Stack.
Image Layer:  Stamped the image from the Just Kidding Stamp Set with Black Memento Ink on Shimmery White card stock Mint Macaron, Sahara Sand, Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry Inks were used to color in the image using Blender Pens.  I paper pierced around 
the edge using the Updated Essentials Paper Piercing pack.  The image was matted with Melon Mambo and Basic Black card stock; the corners were all rounded with the Project Life Corner PunchDimensionals were used to attach it to the card.
Sentiment:  The sentiment from the Just Kidding stamp set was stamped on Crushed Curry Card stock using the Memento Ink.  I used the retired Word Bubble Framelits to cut it out.  A Sponge Dauber was used to sponge around the edges.  Had to use double Dimensionals on the back to pop it up over the edge of the image.
Embellishment:  I used the Petite Petals Punch and the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack for the Mint Macaron and Melon Mambo flowers.  They were attached with Glue Dots.  The center is from the It's My Party Enamel Dots.
This is the second half of the sentiment from the front of the card.  I have to admit that this is probably the main reason I bought this stamp set.  Such a fun sentiment.

I lined a Medium Whisper White envelope with a piece of the same designer paper using the Envelope Liners Framelits.  This adds a little extra punch to the card. 

Thank you for stopping by.  Sure hope your week is going well.
