I pulled out some older products from Catherine Pooler Designs along with a couple new ones and had some fun making this birthday card. I started by stamping the Desert Diamonds Background stamp with embossing ink and stamped it onto a white card stock panel cut to 4 x 5 1/4". Next I heat embossed it with white WOW Embossing Powder and adhered it directly to a white card base. 

I cut the Instant Happy Dies from white card stock and then blended on some Peppermint Scrub ink. I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Flutters & Blooms Paper Pack to fit behind the frame. I added the frame with some craft foam for dimension.

I stamped the cacti, flower pot and flower from the Wanna Hug Stamp Set, cut them out with the coordinating dies and adhered them to the card. I stamped the birthday from the Happy Birthday Many Ways Stamp Set in Midnight ink. 

I'm playing along with a couple of challenges today:
