Packed for Birthday with Stampin' Up! and SQSC21

Hi there My Stamping Friends, Today I spent the day celebrating our daughter's 8th birthday. We had such a fun and special day. One of the highlights for me was giving her the card that I made especially for her and listening to her ooh and ahh over every detail while telling me all the parts she loves best.....turns out she ended up liking ALL the parts best. It was heartfelt and adorable.

Here is a photo of the card. I used the SQSC21 as a sketch challenge and pretty quickly came up with this idea.

The base card is Melon Mambo with a layer of Pear Pizzazz on the bottom. I used some of the DSP from the Stampin' Up! Spring Fever Simply Scrappin' kit on the bottom. I stamped the Packed for Birthday stamp on Whisper White and then cut the top of the cardstock using the Labels Collection Framelits Die and my beloved Big Shot. I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes and the Queen for a Day sentiment from the You're a Gem stamp set. I colored with my Stampin' Up! Stampin' Write Markers and added some new Pear Pizzazz 3/8th inch pleated satin ribbon. I finished up with some Brights and Subtles Designer Buttons and a Trinket Crown for the Queen (of course).
