Big News.... It's Your Birthday

I love the bold, bright colors on this card!!  How about you??

I think it would be perfect for a guy or a girl - so, I probably better keep it for those "guy" birthdays that I never seem to have enough cards for!

We start our card with a Crushed Curry card base, then added a strip of 2015-17 In Color Designer Series Paper (DSP) to the card (in the Cucumber Crush pattern).  This DSP also comes in Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe and Delightful Dijon - in 4 different patterns of each!

Next, we stamped "it's your birthday!" and "enjoy the fuss" from the Big News Stamp Set in Basic Black Archival Ink. I love the size of the sentiments in this set - you don't need much else to create a great card with these stamps!  The sentiments really speak for themselves.

Then, we stamped a heart (in Crushed Curry ink), the smaller "swoosh" (in Cucumber Crush ink) and the larger "swoosh" (in Bermuda Bay ink) - all of these images can be found in the Work of Art Stamp Set

We layered this stamped piece on top of a piece of Basic Black card stock, 
to really make it pop off the card.

Finally, we tied a Bermuda Bay Thick Baker's Twine bow around this piece.  Then, we added this piece to our card with Dimensionals

For a fun, finishing touch, we added a few Rhinestones to the card.
