Happy Birthday with Laughing Lola

I made this card especially for the challenge over at Color My Heart.  We are on Color Dare #55, use Laughing Lola Gold, Blue and Purple. 

I decided to use CTMH New Spin Cards(Z1866) and some of the Laughing Lola Assortment(Z1854) to finish it off.
The Plaid paper is cut at 4 3/4" x 6 3/4", and then the Paisley paper is cut at 3 1/2" x 5".  The square cut out is 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" and I used that piece to give the sentiment a background.  I then used a 3/4" strip of the Snake Print and used our new scallop punch to create the boarder.  The happy birthday sentiment is stamped directly on the spinner piece, and then I stamped it a second time on the snake print paper, and trimmed it out.  Then paper pieced it onto the spinner.

As you can see, when you open the card, the Happy Birthday sentiment spins, so it is on the inside of the card. 

To purchase any of the items I have used here, you can shop here, or with your local consultant.
