Seize the Birthday

Happy Saturday everyone! I whipped up this birthday card for my brother who is celebrating on the 8th. I was inspired by THIS CARD by Kara Vrabel. I loved the way the "happy" stamp had tilted letters to echo the tilted card panels.  I didn't have a small "balloon tail" stamp so I hand drew the strings using a medium point black gel pen. I'm entering this into the Seize the Birthday "Anything Goes" challenge.  Heading out to work shortly and hoping I beat the severe thunderstorm they are predicting!  Enjoy!

STAMPS: Whole Lotta Happy (WPlus9), Sending, Hoping, Wishing (WPlus9).
PAPER: Bermuda Bay (SU), Black, White. 
INK: Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Pistachio Pudding (all by SU).
