Map if for You Monday...happy birthday with succulent garden designer series paper

Today, I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch for this card! 
A simple sweet sketch that creates a fabulous end result! 
You have until this Thursday to create your take of the sketch and get it uploaded to their link!

Who has a lot of designer series paper? Who never has enough designer series paper? I do have a lot of designer series paper.  As far as designer series paper, I probably have enough to wallpaper every house on my block, but there's something about pattern paper...it just whispers to me and calls my name and calls out....look at me! I'm so pretty!!!! Loving paper can be addicting! :) And so rewarding and fun and....how would you finish the statement or explicative.... Loving paper can be addicting and....????

One of the many things that I love about Stampin' Up is that even though flamingo pink is not the exact color in this piece of  designer series paper from the succulent garden designer series pack...it still works!!!  The base of the card is cut at 41/4".  The flirty flamingo is cut a 31/4" by 51/2"  The succulent garden designer series paper is cut at 3" by 51/2".  I cut a 1" circle of flirty flamingo and a 1" strip of flirty flamingo cardstock for the greeting.  I used the Happy Birthday from feathers together photopolymer stamp pad from Stampin' Up! I stamped it using the memento black tuxedo black ink.  I topped off the card with the watermelon wonder ribbon tied around the top.  I will miss this ribbon along with watermelon wonder from the incolors!
