Big on Birthdays, Whole Lot of Lovely, Birthday Card

The jury is still out on this one.  I'm not sure I'm liking the bottom and top together of the "Whole Lot of Lovely" Decorative Series Paper (DSP).  They are the opposites of each other on the paper.  Maybe it's because of the orientation of the pieces. Perhaps if I would have used the flowery one as the background and the strips as a layer????

To make this card, I used a folded half-sheet of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut it at 4-1/4" on the 8-1/2" side.  I cut a piece of Tranquil Tide, cut 4" x 5-1/4".  I cut the DSP 3-3/4" x 5".  I cut that piece in half.  I taped those pieces in place on top of the Tranquil Tide cardstock.   I added a Crushed Curry "Mini Chevron" ribbon.  

If I had been smart I would have die cut that scalloped square before I added the DSP on top of it.  So I had to take a new piece of Tranquil Tide cardstock.  

I stamped the words from the "Big on Birthdays" using Tranquil Tide ink and Whisper White cardstock.  I set that in place using Dimensionals.  

And that was it.  Super quick but I'm trying to like the combination of the two designs.  

Thank you for stopping by today,

I think this is a very pretty card with those two DSPs. I had to chuckle when I read that you could have cut the scalloped layer from the bottom layer had you thought about it earlier. It's nice to know others do things like that. Have a great day!
