Birthday Card ~ Light It Up (post #1)

I thought I would give a one layer CAS card another try.
First I got out my new Pinwheels & Popsicles stamp set that arrived in my mailbox last week.
I stamped the lanterns in the upper left hand corner then again in the upper right hand corner after masking off one the lanterns so I could have them overlap a little.
Next I used the ribbon section from the That's a Wrap stamp set to create a frame for my sentiment.
The lower left hand corner was a tad empty and I wanted to add something birthday related so I used this adorable mouse and present from the Hello Friend stamp set.
I colored them all up using my Tombo colored pencils.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Sentiment and lanterns from the Pinwheels & Popsicles stamp set from Flourishes.
*Sentiment frame is a ribbon section from the That's a Wrap stamp set from Flourishes.
*Mouse and present are from the Penny Black Hello Friend stamp set.
*Memento tuxedo Black stamps pad.
*Images colored using the Tombo Irojiten Jewel tone 1 colored pencil set.
->Thanks Tombo for making the $100.00 product donation to the Council for Arts Education.
May your day always be filled with love.

  4. This card turned out beautifully! I loved how you masked off the pair of lanterns that are overlapping and I thought it was brilliant to create a frame for your sentiment like you did.
