Happy Birthday To You - A Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Card

This card is for the latest Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog.  I have a new love affair going on with Waltzingmouse stamps and their challenge blog.  Awesome, awesome work, so please check them out.  For this sketch, I pulled out a paper stack that I've had longer than I can remember, but until recently haven't done anything with.  I'm sure I'm not the only one out there who hoards paper.  You know who you are!  It's the DCWV Black Currant stack, and there are some really elegant papers in this stack.  Since this is a circular card, I decided the easiest way to cut the base shapes would be to use my Cricut.  I used the card feature on Art Philosophy for the card base. This cartridge is worth its weight in gold for the cards alone.  They are so many different options.  Not only is there a simple circle card shape but several different scallop shaped cards as well.  At first I went with just the basic circle, but after I had adhered the pattern paper I decided I needed something extra so I went back and cut out a scallop circle to use as a mat and then added a zigzag stitch to give it a bit more interest.  

The stamps are all Waltzingmouse, and the ribbon tag is from Spellbinders.  The bling on the center of the circle is from Prima.  I really, really like this card and since I rarely have any Birthday Cards on hand I'm sure this one will be used soon.

Here is the inside:
