The Birthday Wheels Are Spinning...so to speak!

Hello everyone.  I wanted to share with you a card I made for the Stamp It! Cards Birthday Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  The challenge was to create a birthday card where stamping is the primary technique.  This is the card I came up with:
 This card is an adorable size too!  It is 4-1/2" x 3-1/4".  It fits perfectly into some new envelopes I just ordered from Papertrey Ink.  For a little added dimension I stamped the banner in Ocean Tides ink onto the card front and again on a scrap piece of cardstock.  I then hand cut and mounted it on dimensional adhesive directly over the stamped image.  Before I mounted it though, I tied a bit of button twine around it for some added texture.    I also stamped one of the hearts from the My Mind's Eye stamp set on scrap paper, trimmed it out and adhered it with dimensional adhesive.
 Here is a look at the inside of the card.  I figured I had the stamps and ink already out, why not add a little fun detail to the inside!
The banners were made from a new set I just bought from My Mind's Eye.  The set is called Lost and Found Two Breeze "Dream" Collection.  Super fun set!  This set included a bicycle but it was a bit small for the card front so I used another little set from We R Memory Keepers called "Cruising"  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Happy Hexagon set.  I think that is going to be a well loved sentiment since it is tiny and in two pieces so you can stamp it however you want. 

This card came together rather quickly and I love the results.  I hope you like it too.!

Thanks for stopping by!
