Patterned Party

 A few birthday cards to use some of this retired ADORABLE specialty sweet shop dsp. I bought it off the clearance rack for like $3 i think!! love it. On the card above i could sneak in another of those pretty little SAB buttons from the sycamore collection. Adhere w/ a mini glue dot and it should stay put.
paper: calypso coral, sweet shop dsp, soft suede, pool party
ink: calypso coral, soft suede, lucky limeade
stamps: patterned party ( i put the sentiments on the inside)
tools: big shot, edgelits adorning accents, wide oval punch, lrg decor punch, itty bitty punch pack
accessories: rhinestones, pool party ruffled ribbon
