Quick and Easy Birthday Card for my brother

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! This post will be shorter than most! :) It's been a long time since I've made a card not required as a design team commitment. Those types of postings I always include the blog badges, link, and lots of details about the new challenge of participation/competition. As the blog title states that this is for my brother, orange is his favorite color, so it was chosen for the base.

He rarely travels for leisure because he drives a semi for his living! But I couldn't resist using this oval label piece as a focal and add in some summery tropical flair with the sassy pineapple! 

Quick and easy with the various stickers: chevron striped type labels, the die-cut layered pineapple, and the different types of lettering. 

Happy Birthday little brother!


A few design and vendor notes:

1. flat orange card base and matching envelope are from Darice

2. gold honey cardstock scrap piece is from Astrobrights/Neenah

3. the letter tile stickers for "to you" are from Freckled Fawn

4. small square foam adhesives are used to lift up the focal piece
