Stampin' Up Cherry on Top Birthday


Hi everyone!

Claire has an awesome sketch for us to try this week at The Paper Players:


I'm always in the need of Birthday cards, so I decided to make a couple with this sketch. 
 I used some fun ice cream cone die cuts from a friend of mine. I had some matching SU Cherry on Top washi tape and used that for my panels behind the circle. I adhered it all onto an Avery Elle wonky stitched rectangle. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Endless Birthday Wishes. I stamped the "Birthday" inside.

Laurie, I can feel another enabler coming on.... those circle dies :-) Your sentiment is perfect with the choice of colors - this whole card makes me feel happy. A perfect Birthday card. This card has so many wonderful elements that I think of as "pure Laurie" - the basket weave cone, the gorgeously shiny cherry and the repetition of elements. Fabulous!
