For today's card, i used "Happy Sweet Cuts" and "Happy" set.  To create this card, i cut several strips out of various color cardstock.  I used painter tape (sticky side up) to hold my strips together while assembling my pattern.  Then I used a frame die to trim my panel.  Next I used the "Happy Sweet Cuts" to cut the word from my patterned panel.  I also cut the word 4 more times from some scrapped white  cardstock to create the 3D effects.  Lastly, "Birthday" sentiment was stamped, embossed and adhered to the base using foam tape.  Few pearls added to finish the look.
