A 'Clean and Simple' Birthday Card

Today's card is one I made for a fellow crafter who celebrated
 her birthday yesterday.

I kept the design clean and simple, by firstly die-cutting the word
 'happy' on a square piece of white card. I then embossed the square and
attached it to the lilac square glued to the card base, with craft foam to the
main panels and 3D foam squares
to the letters, to give it good support
through the post.
I then added the die-cut 'birthday, some sequins and Nuvo drops.

The products I have used are:-
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Polka Dots
Clearly Besotted Stamps - Birthday die
'Happy' die - Purchased from eBay
