Fall to Layout #47 Take Two

Happy Sunday!

Time for another sketch. This is one I love! It's a good one for when you want to keep something feeling clean and simple, but maybe you want to break out of your usual layout.

Card Base: 4-1/4 x 5-1/2
Yellow Layer:  3-3/8 x 4-3/4
Sentiment: 3-1/4 x 3/4 (some goes under the circle and is hidden)
Teal Strip: 3-1/4 x 1/8
Circle: 2 inch diameter
Scalloped Circle: 2-1/8 diameter

As much as I am still in the mood for Christmas cards, I needed a few birthday cards, so this one served two purposes-sketch card and birthday card! I started off with this fun 3-tiered cake from the Happy Hippos set. I coloured that with Copics (BG11, BG15, Y32, Y53, YR07 and R32). I attached that to a dotty stitched white circle. I still wanted a bit more contrast, so I die cut one more slightly larger scalloped circle for the frame. For my lemon layer, I stamped the single cupcake from that same set all over to make a subtle patterned paper. I brought in another scalloped element with the eyelet lace die. Finally, the sentiment was stamped on some aqua paper and I added a tiny strip of teal for added interest.

Stamps: Happy Hippos, Ways to Say: Happy Birthday
Ink: Tuxedo Black, Tropical Teal, Harvest Gold
Paper: Stamper's Select White, Melon Berry, Lemon Tart, Tropical Teal, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores
Dies: Happy Hippos, Eyelet Lace, scalloped circle, stitched dots
