Happy Birthday!

As often happens when I try to combine challenges, I go off on a bit of a tangent. The following card is my attempt to follow this week's Clean&Simple sketch and make something for CAS-tastic Wednesday (Yellow, blue and a neutral).

Here's the sketch:

But as you can see, it doesn't follow the sketch as much as it should:

Happy Birthday!

I insisted on using this patterned paper (from Chatterbox) as it's yellow and blue. I just didn't think about how much I would need to layer with and trimmed to my little heart's content until I was left with a little pile of scraps... oops! So I salvaged as best I could and it works, which is the main thing!

Size of card: 6"x4" top folding

Card/paper - Quill white cardstock, Chatterbox "Vacation Floral", Cream cardstock
Stamp - My Sentiments Exactly "Birthday Sentiments"
Ink - Versacolor "Atlantic"
Extra - Hero Arts "Sparkle" embossing powder
Tools - Fiskars paper trimmer, Osmer glue tape, foam tape

Challenge: CWC009 / FTL#96

Thanks for looking :)
