Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up Challege with Avery Elle

Playing along today in the Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up Challenge. This month they are featuring Avery Elle and these are the two sets I used to create my card...

I started by stamping my sentiment onto the front of my white card base. The 'HAPPY' 'BIRTHDAY' and 'YOU' are all from Totally Awesome and the 'To:' is from Sweet Tidings. I just love the little cupcake in Sweet Tidings and thought it would be perfect accent to my birthday card. I used the coordinating Sweet Tidings die collection to die cut three of them and then colored them in using the Copics you see in the photo above.

I wanted part of my sentiment to POP so I stamped another 'HAPPY' onto a separate piece of white card-stock, colored it in and then adhered it with a strip of foam adhesive. To finish, I added a few sequins to give it a little sparkle.

Thank you so much for visiting me today! I hope you enjoyed...Happy Friday to you!
