Happy Birthday Mixing it Up


Hi Crafty friends-

My jumping off point for this card is the August Mix it Up Challenge for Ellen Hutson with Avery Elle products, and I am still in need of birthday cards so another for Seize the Birthday - no Toppings, and these are some fabulous dies, so it is also going to Happy Little Stampers - August Anything Goes with Dies.



I wanted an almost squarish card to better highlight the center circle so I cut down my card base and the Avery Elle die -Horizontal Stripes to 4.25 inches by 4.5 inches. I used Ellen's Wild Garden dies to decorate the circle and finished it off with a sentiment from Ellen's set Lovely.
