TSOT #421 - Birthday Wishes

Welcome to this week's Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch! 

I stayed true to the sketch again this week - only pulling my long strips all the way to the left side as I thought my card looked more finished that way than with them sort of hanging in the centre. 

I chose to use a Close To My Heart paper pack called True Love - the background paper is very busy so the other patterns I chose were more subtle in nature. I backed all the patterned paper with cardstock to help set it apart from each other. The sentiment was stamped on a patterned piece of paper that is very light so it shows up well. I used two stamp pads - Eggplant and Sapphire - and rocked and rolled the sentiment so both colours would appear on the image. Some twine was added along with gems that were coloured to match the papers. 

I am also entering my card in the Double Trouble challenge this week. The main challenge is a recipe challenge: to use at least 3 colours, 2 design papers and 1 sentiment. 
I used more than 3 colours, more than 2 design papers but just the one sentiment.
