Freshly Made Birthday

I have been working on this card for days…and I think I went a little overboard.  I am really a Clean and Simple gal, so when I do make a more intense card I just can’t stop with the embellishments and textures.  And this card has it all!  The image panel looked a little plain, so I fringed the top and bottom.  Used the new cute Houndstooth embossing folder from Stampin’ Up! for the first time and cut some little buttons  for the corner.  Then, since I was on a roll, I ran the sentiment through the crimper.  I probably used 50 Stampin’ dimensionals – everything is “popped up.”  But, after all that, I really like this card- it will be perfect for a “little” friend birthday.  Here’s the sketch we were given for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge # 3:

And, here’s my card:
FMS3 Happy Birthday Up Up and Away
All supplies by Stampin’ Up!  I hope this is the beginning of a wonderful week for you.
