My Happy Birthday card for today is a little different.  It is not the super bright and cheery card you may be used to.  The colors are a little deeper and would make a great masculine birthday card.

Happy Birthday Thinlit, 143700


The biggest difference is that I split the Happy and Birthday from the Happy Birthday Thinlits. What do you think?  I do believe it is just fine to do that.  It gives a totally different look.

My color inspiration came from the designer series paper.  It is from the Delightful Daisy DSP pack.  The variation of the green is beautiful.  I looked at the different shades and came up with Old Olive, Pear Pizzaz, and Lemon Lime Twist.   I used those markers to color the party hat.

The hats are stamped and then colored with the markers I listed above.  The center one is stamped , but also has a hat raised with dimensionals on top of it.  Stamping underneath gives a much better look than just raising the image with a white space beneath.  I used the Clear Wink of Stella on the pompoms of the hats.  It really does not photograph though.

I used the Big Shot to cut the Happy Birthday after I had attached the Multipurpose Adhesive sheet to the card stock.  (This is a must have for intricate cutouts)  I used my paper snips to cut the two words apart and attached them to the layers.  I placed them as high, and then low, as I could to make room for the middle panel.

Thank you very much for visiting with me today.  I hope your day is awesome!!
