This card was another experiment for the last batch of birthday cards for the card ministry. Again, I decided that it was too involved for mass production. This time it was the fussy cutting of the party hats that made me decide against it. Now if I had dies to cut those out…

When I designed this card, this sketch was a current challenge. However, life got in the way and I didn’t manage to post my submission in time to participate. I like the design elements of this sketch, so I may revisit it for a future card.

A number of products that I used are retiring as of Monday. And, Stampin’ Up! has discounted some of the retiring products to further move their inventory to clear up space for new goodies. The embossing folder that I used for the center panel is one of the discounted products. You can check out the discounted products using this link. The other retiring products that I used are the stamp set and the sequin trim. You can peruse all of the retiring products with this link.
