Card of the Day - Celebrate!

Hello and welcome back! I've got a birthday card for you today - actually it's for my daughter-in-law and my niece!

I found my inspiration today at three different challenges - the tic tac toe challenge at Retro Rubber, the sketch at Case This Sketch, and the colors at As You See It.

I used the elements in the right hand column of the tic tac toe board by die-cutting the labels for the birthday sentiment (from Hello Cupcake, a 2019 Sale-A-Bration set), and adding a strip of Lovely Lipstick foil paper and Daffodil Delight ribbon for the bright colors. The DSP is from Painted Seasons, also a 2019 Sale-A-Bration item, and brings in the Call Me Clover color. A mat of Soft Suede under the DSP adds the last color requirement. A little bling is always a good thing, so I colored a couple of basic rhinestones with the Light Lovely Lipstick Stampin' Blends marker before adding them to the card front. The inside sentiment (not shown) is from Curly Cute and is stamped in Call Me Clover, and the flower on the envelope is from Painted Seasons and stamped in Lovely Lipstick.

Here's a better shot of the foil paper strip. 

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
