More Birthday Wishes

Happy Tuesday Peeps!!
Today I am sharing a card I made on Saturday, another birthday card. I started out to make a few simple, mailable  cards for my etsy store, but as I usually do, I went a bit overboard.

I like the end results, but it was not an easy card and it, altho you could mail, it is a bit heavy.
I used the Stampin Up set called "Happiness Shared" stamp set. I stamped the image onto some confetti card stock and colored with my aqua painter and  ink pads. 
I then stamped another image and colored to cut out and add to the top, I cut out the flower and a few leaves to pop up with a few dimesionals over the main image.
I cut out the circle and scallop circle with my nesties.

The base is made from the same confetti card stock that the image is stamped on, I followed that up with some blushing bride card stock and the DSP is from the Stampin Up Paisley Prints paper pack. I used one of the new Textured Impressions Embossing folders with the confetti card stock as the next layer. I then added the scrunched ribbon. I added the main piece to the base with dimesionals. I then made the double bow with the antique brad center and added tot he card using my glue gun.
Then the sentiment piece came next, I stamped this sentiment from the "Petite Pairs" stamp set with black on the confetti card stock, used my 1-1/4 inch circle punch to cut it out and then matted with a 1-3/8 inch circle of blushing bride card stock. I then went a bit crazy with a bunch of basic pearls!! I added a couple of heart pins from my stash to the bow piece and it is done!

Well, I hope you like my "easy and mailable card".....LOL!!! thanks for stopping by toady and we will talk again soon!!!
