Happy Birthday...

My Favorite Things has a new set this month called Party Patterns.  I love the simple shapes and the little details included in this set.  I wanted to make a bold background but then I wanted to tone it down with a little vellum.

I stamped the circles in these Premium Dye colors:

Wild Cherry
Orange Zest
Lemon Drop
Sour Apple
Lush Lagoon

I die cut the card front, as well as the vellum cover, with the large stitched die from Blueprints 25.  I wanted to let the color show through so I attached the vellum cover with one staple at the top, and hid that by using this tiny (very adorable) bow die.  I die cut the brushstroke sentiment and attached it to the vellum and then covered it all in Glossy Accents.

Here is a shot of all those fun Premium Dye ink colors....
