Sometimes you just need to relax while celebrating your summertime birthday.  And, it’s always nice to have a friend by your side.


Today’s card was inspired by Jeanie Stark at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge. I chose the middle row down: blue-embossing-happy.

The two chairs, side by side, were cut with the die from Seasonal Layers using thick Whisper White cardstock. I embossed “HAPPY” with one of the Celebrations Duo embossing folders. It’s named “Duo,” because the set comes with the word “Celebrate” also. I layered this Lemon Lime Twist “HAPPY” on Whisper White to match the chairs. I needed a tiny “birthday,” and found it in the At Home With You Bundle. The white stick, balloons (colors are Bermuda Bay and Tempting Turquoise) and bows are from the Balloon Adventures set.


I attached dimensionals and dots of glue, and placed all of this on the “lawn” from Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. Once adhered to an Old Olive card base, we were ready for a happy, relaxing birthday!
