Happy Birthday Elaine!

So I tried to make a birthday card for my daughter Elaine by repeat stamping with ink on a white background & placing a sentiment as a focal point in the center.  The border stamp I used was from a Fiskar's set which I had right here by my side a day ago & have already misplaced...sorry..how many times has that happened to you..LOL!!!  The inks I used were Colorbox & the "smile" sentiment is from a Little Yellow Cycle die set I got from Hobby Lobby.  I die cut the smile sentiment from black card stock, adhered it on the front of the card, then went over it with some clear Wink of Stella.  I stamped the "It's Your Day" sentiment from Stampin Up below it.  Added some lavender sequins in both corners & called it a day!!  Although I thought of a few upgrades I should have done to the card, my daughter really liked it and that's all that matters!!  Thanks for stopping by!!
