Hairy Situation

 I created this birthday card using the sketch from the  Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. 

I started with a yellow card base.  I embossed a piece of white card stock using a star embossing folder and added it across the top of the card.  I then added a piece of hot pink card stock backed in white.  To the bottom of the hot pink card stock I added 3 strips of card stock. The first strip I cut a piece of yellow card stock and embossed it using the star embossing folder then backed it in white card stock. The next strip I punched the bottom of a hot pink strip of card stock using a star border punch.  For the third strip I added one of the hot pink stars to the bottom of a strip of white card stock.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens. I cut it in a circle and then backed it in yellow card stock before cutting around it using scallop scissors.

To create the flower I colored a white paper flower using a Spectrum Noir pen.  I added a white jellie to the center and two leaves punched out of white card stock.  I also added 3 white jellies to the hot pink card stock, 1 white jellie to the star on the hot pink tag and 3 hot pink jellies to the yellow embossed strip.  I finished my card by stamping the sentiment " happy birthday" at the bottom.
