HAPPY birthday...

Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

It's a busy time of the year and this hop occurs on Black Friday! 
Nothing black about our inspiration photo though!

Wow! Dawn McVey's colors for Christmas!

Birthday is my theme for this hop because we have several
family and friends with birthdays in December. I'm reaching 
for an old PTI stamp/die set, Confetti Garland for my card.

Hawaiian Shores card stock was stamped with gold dots
from the CG set and topped with two, layered tags using
more elements from the photo. I colored some old glossy
 paper with bright Copics and die cut the CG stars, balls and
snowflakes from them. Two PTI Tag Sale: Quilted tags were 
cut, one from SSS white woodgrain paper and the other from 
PTI starry vellum. The confetti die cuts were placed on the 
woodgrain tag and a greeting from PTI Stylish Sentiments:
Birthday was stamped in Delicata Gold ink on the vellum.
A twist of seam binding with a gold string bow finishes the
  card. There are several confetti shapes left for more birthdays!
