For today's card, I used the first set I wanted for sale-a-bration, Engraved Greetings. I loved this set when I first saw it in the Idea Book and Catalog last summer, but thought "I have enough birthday sentiments." Free always trumps enough! For this card, I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in Rich Razzleberry onto Very Vanilla, then used the Ticket Corner punch before mounting that onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry. I wanted to have perfect corners for a little birthday bling, thanks to Basic Rhinestones.
The base of the card is Melon Mambo. To have a full trio of rich, bright colors, I used my Circle Scissors Plus and Glass Mat to cut a 3" circle of Pacific Point, then embossed that using the Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. I thought my card needed just a little something more, so my final touch is a strip of Basic Grey that I punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch. I'm ready to sale-a-brate some birthdays now.
