Birthday Puffin - Stampin' Up! Party Puffins

   I'm playing along with the Tic Tac Toe challenge today.  I always love using their diverse choice boards to create a card.  I chose to use the left to right downward diagonal which is "wings, circle and masculine".  Wings was a no brainer since I'm in love with the new Party Puffins set, circles are always a good element and I used them in my die cuts and the patterned paper and I think my colors and feel of the card are masculine.

  This one starts with a Smoky Slate card base, then a layer of Well Suited DSP in the gray dot/circle pattern.

  I used a piece of Coastal Cabana and stamped the candles all over in Coastal Cabana ink.

  The puffin, cake, fish and sentiment are all stamped in Versamark and then embossed with black embossing powder.  It's a great shiny look for this set!  I colored them and then fussy cut them all out and popped them up with dimensionals on stitched circle die cuts.  The sentiment is just cut apart and added to the top.

  The bit of Bubmblebee twill ribbon and knot are added across the Coastal Cabana layer for balance.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
