Celebrate You!

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne today with an easy, fun birthday card featuring the Mouse with Cake die from the new birthday release.  I love  this release; the dies make adorable birthday cards.
For this card I started with the color challenge colors on Splitcoaststampers this week.  They were chosen by none other than our own Mary Marsh!  She chose Lovely Lipstick, Gorgeous Grape and Coastal Cabana.  Just perfect for a festive card.
I cut the pieces from the Mouse with cake and Party Favors dies using the colors plus the neutrals Very Vanilla, Sahara Sand, and Mossy Meadow (my cherry stem.)  I used just a touch of the Lovely Lipstick ink to color the mouse's ears.
For my card layout I chose to use a sketch challenge that was on Splitcoaststampers awhile back.  A hint to make cards go faster - I download the sketch challenge each week from SCS, print it out and keep in a file.  I may not use it then, but I have it for future use.
I flipped this sketch and used two of the third smallest Stitched Squares in white, one of the largest Stitched Square in Grape and one of the fourth smallest Stitched Rectangles in white.
I glued them to an A2 card base.
I heat embossed the sentiment on Lipstick card stock and trimmed it close to the embossing.  I glued all the die cuts to the card, popped up the sentiment using foam dots and added a few glitter enamel dots in the corner.  Super easy!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have a fun and creative weekend!
