Celebrate - with Donuts!

Today I have a card to share using a fun new set from Waltzingmouse called Dinky Donuts (yum, right!? who doesn't love donuts?!) There are 3 stamps for each size donut - the donut base, the frosting and sprinkles (hearts, jimmies, or flowers.)   I punched the centers out with a 1/4" hole punch and a 1/2" circle punch.
The bold sentiment is from WMS Say It Loud.
Two of the donuts are up on foam dots over the patterned paper and added some white sequins from WMS Shaker Mix Vanilla Frost.  I tied some Honeydew twine around the panel before layering it to the black panel and then to the card base.
I decided to make this a gift card and used the WMS Gift Card It die to do it.  The die cuts two half circles in just the right place to slip a gift card through and hold it securely!   The Coffee and Cake sentiment is from WMS Coffee Set, the Happy Birthday is from WMS Free Spirit Sentiments.
My design was inspired by the Time Out Challenge: to case Alice's card below
