It Was Supposed To Be Punny

Hello.  Welcome.  The lovely Becca is having a bit of a birthday bash and wants us to link up some birthday cards.  Now I don't mind helping you celebrate Becca.  What fun.  Here's Becca's mood board


Now the first thing that struck me was the chick in sunglasses.  Becca also mentions purple and teal, polka dots, fun, brights and puns.  I decided to use the Repeat Impressions sketch.  So I did this



I used a raspberry base card.  I used brushos on another piece of the raspberry card and cut using Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die.  


I cut a panel from Bazzill dots card using Spellbinders die and a frame in blue using the same dies.  The owl is from Unity Woo Hoo set stamped on mauve flower paper and fussy cut.  I stamped the glasses again in blue, fussy cut and added wink of stella to the rims and glossy accents.  The happy birthday is a preprinted die cut from Craft Creations.  I added some flowers cut using Cheery Lynn BAF die, coloured with wink of stella and added a teal rhinestone to each flower.
