Enjoy your Special Day

I made this card for a friend's birthday and am entering the Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge, Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Paper Creator 'Anything Goes challenge.  The papers and card are from my snippets drawer so I'm heading into the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 6" cream mat
Stamp: Hobby Art 'General Greetings'
Punches: Woodware 2" square & regular corner rounder
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia
Snippets: Lili of the Valley 'Father Knows Best' paper, Cream, burgundy and dark brown card
Other: Heart stick pin

I punched five 2" squares from the 'Father Knows Best' paper and rounded opposite corners on four of the squares.  These four squares were attached to a square of cream card which was then trimmed to size.  The square was then layered onto burgundy and dark brown card before being attached to the card front.  The fifth square had all four corners punched and was attached to the centre.  I stamped the sentiment onto cream card, trimmed it to size and rounded the corners.  This was then attached to the centre panel with foam tape.  To finish I pushed a heart stick pin into the foam tape.
