a colorful happy birthday card

Just a quick post... I wanted to share this bright and cheery (I hope!) birthday card! I used PTI's Take Three die, which I really want to try to utilize more. I've seen some awesome cards, using the die to create a "window" effect, which is obviously not what I did here, lol.


But, I'm still happy with how this came out. I also used one of the Banner Border dies - these are such a fun and easy accent for a card!  The stamps are YOF: Lily of the Valley, colored with Copics in colors to match the Orange Zest, Hibiscus Burst, and Spring Rain cardstock; and the Sheet Music Background stamp.  The sentiment is a combination of PTI ("happy birthday") and Verve.

Thanks for looking!
