Kaleidoscope Birthday

Today's entry in my week of birthday cards is a colorful card. I received a swap at the Stampin' Up convention using this layout and I knew it would be awesome with the NEW Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper from the Occasions mini catalog.  I really like how the colors pop on the Basic Gray background. I don't think I would have come up with the Strawberry Slush, Crushed Curry, and Bermuda Bay color combination on my own--thank goodness the Kaleidoscope DSP did that for me! I used the hexagon punch to cut out the end of the flags--so super easy (easier than using the 1" square punch, IMHO). I added a little bling by adhering the largest basic rhinestones to the "ears" of the Strawberry Slush piece, to which I added dimension by running it through the Stripes embossing folder. I put it all together and gave it depth with Stampin' Dimensionals. Quick, easy, and colorful!
