Tropical Birthday

Hi there!

The card I have to share today was made for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  I love the curved layer and knew it would be a super easy Clean and Simple card to make.

It's been so gray and dreary this weekend, I wanted to make something colorful.  The circle is perfect for a layered flower from Flower Patch and I chose Sweet Sorbet designer series paper to give a "tropical" feel.

The dsp was adhered to a same size panel of white card stock then the corners were rounded.  None of my dies gave me a large enough circle to use as a guide so I pulled out my old protractor to help me at least get evenly rounded corners : - ). A bit of ribbon was tied on, then the panel was popped up over the Pool Party base.

Before the panel was added, I used a Stampamajig to properly align my sentiment.  Once that was done and the panel added, the card was finished off with the big flower and some rhinestones.

Simple and easy, I like that!  Be sure to use the link above to check out all the great inspiration at the SSSC.  As always, your visit and comments are so appreciated!  I will be back later with another post, so do drop by if you have a chance.
