Happy 21st Bday!

Just playing around with some new acrylic Stampendous sets I got, but you don't even want to know how long I spent on this card - trust me! I had it all made with a larger set of brackets and different birthday stamp, but it had too much white space above the letters. I decided I had to cut the letters of the "happy" stamp all apart, both for purposes of aligning to fit better and for inking them easily. So I've combined two different Stampendous sets as well as "bday" from Studio G. It turned out much more to my liking this time! ;-)
The Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder on lime green paper instead of the DP would have been cute here - can't wait to get that folder, Gwen!!! -;O
Paper: White cardstock; DCWV Turquoise mat; DP from my stash
Stamps: Stampendous & Studio G acrylics
Ink: Tsukineko Lime & Cyan Versacolor
Embellishments: Marking Memories Ribbon; brad
Tools: Stampin' Up's 1 1/4" & 3/4" Circle Punches
