Birthday Wishes

I have exciting news this morning!  I have a winner for the La La Land Crafts Beach Birthday Bash party favor on my blog!!  Congratulations Carrie of Stamps, Scraps & Scissors, I'll be contacting you very soon!

I think maybe my post title should have been De Lovely meets 365 Degrees!  Those are the names of the paper packs I used for this card.  I don't usually combine different paper packs but why not?  I seem to be drawn to the same colors or are those colors just popular right now?  I've been told I "think" too much...

For my card today I used AJ The Builder from The Stamping Boutique, he's colored with Copic markers and my layout is a sketch by Maria Bell for Christmas Stampin' All Year Long I saw recently on their challenge blog.  I used a Stampin' Up! punch to make the tab for the birthday wishes sentiment that is made by Papertrey Ink and in my browsing challenge blogs I noticed the Belli Challenge asked that you use some of your old forgotten embellishments on your card, good idea!  It's been a long time since I've set eyelets, I've gotten spoiled with self adhesive half pearls and Dew Drops.  I just knew I had these old Stampin' Up! eyelets from a bold brights collection of years gone by.  Do they still make Yo Yo Yellow and bold brights?

This is CUTE! I like the mix of DP, they're working so well together. The eyelets are the perfect embellishment for this great little boy image! I could be wrong, but I think yo-yo-yellow may have bitten the dust!
