Happy Birthday

Hello!  This is Sukie and today I have a fun card to share.  I used one of the die sets from the Safari die release and changed it up to a birthday theme.  These die are so versatile and they work perfectly with all types of cards.

I used card stock to cut out all of the pieces from the Safari Ostrich, the Happy Birthday Phrase, the Oval Set and the Nested Stitched Scallop Oval Set.  The Happy Birthday Phrase was cut out twice for layering.  I went with a neutral theme for my die cuts.
I selected a basic striped paper for my card base.  The diagonal stripes add an element of interest against the set of nested ovals.
I layered the "happy" sentiment and offset it a bit so the white would show.  The sentiment was adhered along the top edge of my card.
Next, I affixed the other half of my sentiment along the bottom edge of my card base.  The layering of the 2 colors adds a shadow element to my sentiment.
The Safari Ostrich was centered inside the set of ovals finishing off my card.  The colors are not my normal go to colors however, I'm really liking the look of the non-traditional theme on this card.
Here are the die sets used on my card, available in the store:
