Happy Birthday to You, Stampin' Up! 2020 Sale-a-Bration, Birthday Card

Today I thought I would play with the "Happy Birthday to You" set. It's one of the new 2020 Sale-a-Bration sets.  I've seen some pretty cards made with it.  I may be giving some of them a try soon.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Daffodil Delight.  

I stamped the cake image on a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock using black Memento ink.  I stamped two of them so I could cut one of them up.  Don't you hate it when you stamp the images and both turn out perfect and you have to cut one of them up?  LOL  I cut the flowers from one of the stamped images.

Then I stamped the words from the same set using black Memento ink. 

I colored the cake using the light Daffodil Delight Blends pen and then I colored on the lines and sides using the dark Daffodil Delight pen.

I colored the flowers using the light Petal Pink Blends pen.  I added some highlights using the dark Petal Pink pen.

I colored the berries and buds using both light and dark Flirty Flamingo Blends pens.

And the leaves were colored in using both light and dark Old Olive Blends pens.

I also colored the cake holder plate thing using the light Smoky Slate Blends pen.

I set the flowers in place using Dimensionals.  

Then I took my Smoky Slate, Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo markers (not Blends pens) and flecked on some splatter colors.  I thought the background was just too blah, it needed something.

I added some round rhinestones that I had left over from one of the Paper Pumpkin kits.  

I taped a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside of the card and it was done.

It was fun to color. Once in a while I get in the mood to color and today I was in the mood!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
