Happy Birthday

Hello!  This is Sukie and today I'm sharing this birthday card for my design team post. Birthday cards are my absolute favorite to create so I had a blast working with the new Birthday dies from Cottage Cutz.
I selected a cheerful color palette with a happy vibe which was combined with some basic white card stock.
I cut out the Birthday Puppy and shaded him and the little cupcake with some Oxide Inks.  I also cut out a couple of circles with the Circle Set and the Nested Stitched Scallop Circle Set.  A bit of Stickles added some sparkle to the candle flame.
I selected a smaller sentiment from the Scrappy Moms (retired) Simple Sentiments stamp set along with some "Tickled with Teal" Trendy Twine.
Once I put my card base together, I layered it with a hand cut flag which was wrapped with the twine to add some softness to the top of my card.  The two circles were nested together and adhered on top of the oversized flag.
The puppy and cupcake were placed inside the double circles and the sentiment was anchored below. I finished off my card with a twine bow.
Here are the dies used on my card, available in the shop:
