"Snappy Birthday" Card

I have to admit that I have been enamored with My Favorite Things stamps and dies lately.  I knew I had to get this set to match all my camera dies and stamps.  I wanted something bright and colorful for a birthday card so this pattern paper was perfect.  I got these Close To My Heart My Reflections Lollydoodle pattern papers as a gift from my scrapbooking retreat, and I love how happy and bright they are.  When I went through my stash of 12x12 paper, I felt like it is Christmas all over again, especially since I don't go through them as much as I like.  So finding this in my stash made my day.
First, I layered white cardstock with pattern paper.  Then I stamped the sentiment in black Brilliance ink and ran it through the Fiskars Fuse twice with die from My Favorite Things Blueprint 14 to give it a border.  I layered the sentiment from My Favorite Things Picture This set with gray cardstock and adhered it to the card.  I cut a banner tail on a strip of polka dot pattern paper before adhering it to the card with foam adhesive.  Then I stamped the camera in MementoLuxe ink before fussy-cutting it out and adhering it to the card with foam adhesive.  I finished the card with enamel dots from My Mind's Eye.
