Happy Joyful Birthday, Yolanda

Hi everyone! I made this birthday card for my sister-in-law, Yolanda. I used the Fall-to-Layout #32 from Clean & Simple. I love their sketches. Sadly, this is the first time I've used one of their sketches; it won't be the last time.

Since my sister-in-law has been collecting "java jackets" for me to use in my crafting, I thought it would be appropriate to use them on her card. I die cut a Starbucks and a Peet's Coffee & Tea java jacket. Let's see if she notices...hehe!

Card Ingredients
Stamps: Small Sayings (SU!-retired)
Paper: blue textured card base (CA Paper Goods), designer paper (BasicGrey Euphoria), Whisper White (SU!), white corrugated flower (Peet's Coffee & Tea), brown corrugated flower (Starbucks)
Ink: Memories Black
Tools: Martha Stewart Circle Cutter, Corner Rounder (Fiskars), Big Shot, Flower Layers #3 (Sizzix/SU!)
Other: Prima flower, Linen thread (SU!), button (Making Memories)
