Mosaic Birthday

 A special someone I know is turning 6 soon and rather than forget until the last minute I decided to be on the ball and make her card now!  OK, so my usual sketch-flipping, creative license is in full force on this one considering the given sketch below.  I think you can see how I got from one to the other (if you squint).  Anyway, it was fun AND I got to put my new Mosaic Madness stamp set and coordinating punch to work so there you go.

And true to form, I mixed in some (really) old with the new.  Don't go looking in the SU catalog for the ribbon slide.  It is LONG gone, and the chipboard 6... I have no idea where that even came from.  However, the numbers stamped in the background- those are from a current set (had to look it up to be sure) called Bring on the Cake.  I just did some creative inking by omitting portions of the stamp I didn't want (like the word happy and the other letters).  The Happy Birthday is current too- yippee!  Itty Bitty Banners it is from and it can be cut out with a framelit called Bitty Banners, although I ended up cutting by hand because it slipped (no I don't have the magnetic base yet but here's a good reason why you should.)  
Anyway, here is the cool sketch.  Click on it to be linked back to the original site!  Thanks again for stopping by.  I do have another card to post if I get around to it...  be prepared for some fall colors and some embossing (wet not dry)!
