Papertrey Ink December Blog Hop

Even though we had a busy family Christmas day yesterday - when we got home I just had to get up into my craft room and make a card for today's Papertrey Ink Blog hop!
Here is the lovely photo inspiration
I decided to go with a birthday card -  rather than a holiday card.  
I folded a piece of white card stock in half and placing the die just above the fold cut the 3 3/4" circle card base using a circle Nestability so the circles stayed together at the top.   Then I cut a single circle out of black using a 3 1/2" circle Nestability.  I used dies and stamps from two PTI sets to decorate the black circle - Spruce and Sprigs and Birthday Cheer.
I embossed the HAPPY onto the black with white embossing powder and layered the sprigs with foam dots.  I adhered the Birthday die cut with Scotch Quick Dry adhesive and added 3 white sequins.  As a final step - I splattered white acrylic paint over the black circle using a Ranger Splatter Brush.
I cut a little bit off of the bottom of the circle so it would stand up!
You'll find everyone's creations and the details for the PTI blog hop over at the PTI blog here.
