Gingham Happy Birthday!

I just can't get away from birthday cards!!  Here is a card that I originally started for the Simon Says Stamp Friend blog hop a couple weeks ago, but just never liked how I finished it, so I didn't put it up for the hop, and put it on my desk for later.  I took it apart three times and put it back together a different way each time(always trying to fit it into or onto a heart like I did with the other three for the hop).  Yesterday, I simplified and I was finally HAPPY...get it?!...
I used the Simon Says Stamp Stained Glass Love stamp/die set to make this sentiment.  I LOVE using these letters with patterned paper...gives them such a fun look!!  I stamped and cut the letter pieces with a scissor.  I adhered them to a stamped and die cut "HAPPY". I added tiny black hearts and glossy accented them.  I tied three die cut heart balloons to the sentiment and popped it up on a black gingham strip with "BIRTHDAY" stamped below it.  All were adhered to a card that I had embossed with my go-to favorite thing right now, burlap!  
Here's a close up...
Rainbows and birthdays are just so much fun, I never get tired of putting them together...they make ME happy:)!!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  1. What a lovely CAS card though I know it took some time to make so simple look so great. Wow! Cutting out all those interiors for the letters. I have been looking for ideas for simple birthday cards and this is a good one. I'll probably just color in my letters though.
