Birthday Card ~ A Happy Day {1st Post}

Happy Friday my friends!
I used a new to me color combo today.
I really do not use orange much except for at Halloween time  
but when you are challenged to use certain colors what's a girl to do?
I started with an aqua base and added white, grey and orange border strips.
Next I inked up my folder and embossed the card panel.
I stamped, colored and fussy cut the flower and butterfly.
I hand cut the banner to fit the sentiment.
To finish up I added shiny sequins.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Flower and butterfly from the Happy Place stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Sentiment from the Happy Days stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Embossed using the Henna folder from Darice.
*Sequins from Darice.
*YR04 and BV23 markers from Copic.
*Grey Wool stamp pad from CTMH.

May your day always be filled with love.
