A Simple Birthday Wish

Today I have a very clean and simple card that uses the Nacho Average Challenge #43 and the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #99.  This was a great sketch that could be used for occasion.

The card base is Whisper White card stockThe multi-colored birthday sentiment is from the Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set.  I colored the letters with Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Baja Breeze and Summer Starfruit markers, huffed on the stamp and stamped it on the card front.  A piece of Patio Party designer paper was
"flagged" on one end and matted with Primrose Petals card stock, also flagged on one end.  I stamped the letters from the All Around Alphabet stamp set on Whisper White card stock with Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Baja Breeze and Primrose Petals ink.  They were punched out with the 1/2" Circle Punch.  Using glue dots, I matted them to the same color card stocks cut into 3/4" circles.  Dimensionals were used to attach them to the card.  There it is - a card with lots of color for a cheerful birthday greeting.  Have an enjoyable weekend.  See you soon.
