Birthday Ticket

This idea popped into my head the other day so I thought I better put it to paper. It actually turned out pretty close to how I saw it in my head. That doesn't always happen.

I die cut some tickets from various colors of cardstock and then die cut the word "happy". The black line was hand drawn around the edge of the card. After it was all assembled I thought it needed a little something more so I added the Stickles to the letters and to the big star. It seemed to give it that little "oomph" that it needed.

Here's a close-up of the tickets...

Change up the color scheme and the word on the tickets ("baby", "girl", "boy", "love"...) and you could make a variety of cards with this design.

Paper: Smokey Shadow, White, Simply Chartreuse, Orange Zest, Hawaiian Shores, Raspberry Fizz (all PTI)
Patterned paper: from my stash
