Layered Birthday Cake

I'm loving the bold bright colors used on the first two Layered Birthday Cake cards, they feel happy and cheery.  For the Layered design, once I've chosen the main patterned paper, I see which of the plain card stock looks best as the background.  I then choose the same color as the next layer on top of the main patterned paper and build from there using the 2nd color. The flowers and striped patterned paper is from the Stampin' Up! Pawsitively Prints 11 Designer Series Paper.
The 3rd card is in a single color with different patterned paper.  For the main patterned paper, I chose a design where green was the dominate color, then for the next layer, chose a design where white was the dominate color.  The white layer with the ribbon and button has been textured embossed and then mounted on card stock.
The stamped Birthday Cake is from the Stampin' Up! Happy Moments stamp set.  The beauty of this stamp is that the occasion of the card speaks for itself and no Happy Birthday greeting is required.                 

Thanks for visiting,
