A Shabby Tea Room Happy Birthday!

A 4" x 4" Happy Birthday card for this weeks Shabby Tea Room #16, challenge! HERE are all the Popsicles & Pinwheels challenge details! For my card, I chose to use Cosmo Cricket Delovey papers, the colors captured the challenge colors perfectly!
The Happy Birthday sentiment can be found in JustRite's, Barouque Nested Frames. The beauty of these newer nested sets is you can pull out the sentiment, use the sentiment with one or both frames, or use the frames alone! I know, I've said it before, the JustRite possibilities are endless! Closeup of the stitching detail down the middle of the twill. I used a larger stitch and pulled at each end to gather. Been wanting to try this, and the twill is perfect in weight and sturdy to hold it's shape. The little pearls stickers that outline the circle are a dollar store find. They are all connected, so it made placement a snap! And another angle of the card! I just smile looking at these beautiful colors! A side note about the sentiment banner, I found THIS IDEA intriguing, and wondered how some designers created what appears like another size die cut. I kept looking at my dies, wondering if I was using them properly! LOL So, that is how I got the perfect cut frame for my Happy Birthday banner!

Hope you are having a terrific Tuesday! A little shopping today is my plan! Haven't been doing much of that this year since the broken ankle! We'll see how it goes! Take good care, thanks so much for stopping by!
