Birthday present card

Hello! I hope you're Sunday is a good one :-) I'm back to share this bright and colourful card. I really wanted to have a good ol' play with some patterned papers so I picked a paper stack and a sketch and made this! The sketch is this weeks My Favourite Things one and I used the presents from the Sweet Birthday Wishes MFT stamp set to do some paper piecing. I added a vellum layer to help simplify things as the papers are pretty busy. I'm also going to enter this into this weeks Simon Says Stamp challenge of Tags, AAA Cards theme of Fussy Cutting, and the current Seize the Birthday, the no toppings Anything Goes theme! Thanks for looking, hope you like it!





Supplies;
Stamps - My Favourite Things 'Sweet Birthday Wishes'
Sentiment - Paper Smooches 'Sentiment Sampler'
Papers - Doodlebug 'Sugar Shoppe'
Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'So Saffron'
Dies - Nestabilities 'Circles' & MFT 'Tag Stax'
Other - ribbon, crochet thread & vellum
