Marigold Studio | "Smile- Today is Your Day!" Birthday Card

My card today reminds me of soft hues, spring and the wispy colors of flower fields in the country side. This is a mix of things that makes me happy and glad to be alive! I started by coloring the coffee cup with pink hearts on watercolor paper, arranging it on a chipboard tag that is sort of old rose in color and decorating it with glitter hearts, a wreath die cut, and a ticket tag that I stamped in brown ink. 
I added a soft blue patterned paper with a hatch design, cut with the Avery Elle pinked edges die, and then to add interest and texture I added a mat with a stitching detail of creme textured paper behind it.
To tie it all together, I added a soft floral pattern and added the stitched detail to it as well. The Birthday Wishes sentiment is from WPlus9 and so is the banner die. A few silver sequins provided just enough bling that was needed to perk it up! 

I finished the inside of the card with a soft pink paper that I stamped with the Hero Arts background stamp, added a stamped sentiment from Hero Arts Stamp, and a couple of trims of patterned paper at the bottom.

Hope you liked my card. Thanks for visiting with me today!
