Happy Birthday

Today is my husband's birthday and I was going to pull out a card from my stash, until I saw that Verve is hosting a Fanspiration Diva Dare this week.  The challenge is to create a card based on inspiration from a project in the Verve Fan Gallery.  As I was looking through some of the cards, I found this one and was totally inspired by the horizontal stripes and the dotted paper.  I would have used a smaller dot pattern if I had it, but didn't so I had to use larger polka dots.

Challenges:
Fanspiration Diva Dare--inspiration from fan gallery
Do You Stack Up#89--kraft & twine
Celebrate the Occasion #80--birthday + buttons and twine
Our Creative Corner--a project for a male + the sketch
Lollipop Crafts #98--use two (or more) punches or dies

Supplies:
paper: DCWV
CS: ripe avocado from PTI; kraft from SU!
Stamps: Skipping Stones Design "Dandelion Dreams"
Dies: PTI Button die; Verve Charming Oval die
