I started this birthday card with a 4.25x5.5" piece of white card stock as a base for adhering my .25" vertical strips of white. Repeating my staggered pattern for all horizontal three rows, I used SU Elegant Eggplant, PTI Harvest Gold and SU Basic Gray card stocks. Once they were all in place I glued the ends to keep them from shifting. A circular design of white crochet thread is adhered under my Happy Birthday sentiment stamped on PTI Vellum in PTI's Smokey Shadow ink and traced with a Stardust Glitter Pen. For added dimension, I die cut the Wet Paint "happy" from PTI's Soft Stone card stock and popped it up using SU dimensionals. Three silver sequins add a touch of bling and lead your eyes to my sentiment. This was adhered to a white card base.
