Hello Gorgeous Birthday! PP346

Hi friends!  The lovely Laurie has a fantastic sketch challenge for us this week at The Paper Players.  Check it out:
I received a few new toys in my Stamping' Up pre-order and thought I would feature them along with some pretty retiring designer paper:
My stamp set and Happy Birthday Thinlit are from the Hello Gorgeous bundle and I love 'em!  This thinlit makes for such a quick and easy card.  The retiring Affectionately Yours DSP inspired my color choices of Crumb Cake, Night of Navy and Watermelon Wonder.
 I used this sweet little blossom stamp from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set to stamp the background of the card base--I love this trendy tone-on-tone stamping look.  This little stamp coordinates very well with the blossoms on the pretty paper.  
A close-up shows you the detail of the Happy Birthday Thinlit.  I was pleasantly surprised with how easy this popped out of the cardstock after running through the Big Shot with the Precision Base Plate.  Cut through like butter!  I cut a second piece from Crumb Cake cardstock and used it like a drop shadow behind the main Watermelon Wonder die-cut.  

I hope you liked my card sure to pop over to The Paper Players and check out the rest of the inspiration from my friends on the Design Team.  Maybe you will play along with us before our challenge closes on Friday, June 2nd at Noon (PST).  Thanks for stopping by today....on my birthday!
