First Birthday Wishes

Hi~

One of our neighbor's granddaughter is turning 1, so here is the card to celebrate the occasion.
I literally started this card like I do most of my cards...shopping my stash. I knew I had some bright fun papers in there I just had to keep digging! :-))) Viola! I rounded the bottom two corners and I adhered to my kraft card base.  I found some Lilac polka-dot patterned paper which was die cut into a large scalloped border. A pink eyelet border was die cut and layered above the scalloped border and applied to the center of my multi-colored patterned paper. 
A scrap of Whisper White that was die cut from Taylored Expressions serves as the focal base which was stamped using DeNami Designs Birthday Wishes Circle. Inside the circle, a darling little birthday hat is stamped from DeNami Designs Birthday Celebration set. Next is just lots of layering fun and cute papers bringing the focus to the 1! For a finishing touch, a few clouds were diecut from some adorable plka-dot paper!
Aren't all those papers just cute together! See, it pays to shop your stash! :-))))

Inspiration for this sweet little card was found at JayGee's Nook.  My focal inspiration was driven from the photo of the place setting and of course the colors.
