Time to Celebrate!

It's your birthday so let's celebrate!

The "toppings" option this week at Seize the Birthday is 
I have this floral paper from Crate Paper and thought it 
 would make a great focal piece -
and when I paired it with the striped pattern it looked complete.
I used some fun foam to pop it up a bit and give it some dimension.
Instead of stamping a sentiment I used the celebrate die from
Penny Black. A little bit of twine and some sequins and it's done.

I love when I can use a lot of pattern on a card and yet it doesn't
look busy. It doesn't always work out that way but this time it did :)

Happy Stampin'
