Time To Celebrate!

Took a break from Spring/Easter projects to make a male birthday card I need for next week:


I acquired this Memory Box Happy Birthday Background die specifically for male birthday cards.  I recently learned a great trick (that many of you probably already know!) at a Stampin' Up workshop for getting die cuts out of intricate dies.  Run the die through your die cutting machine a second time after placing an unscented dryer sheet underneath it and the die cut pieces will stick to the dryer sheet eliminating the need to poke and prod them from the die!!!  So simple but a serious game changer for me:)
Other Materials Used:  Stampin' Up night of navy, crumb cake, calypso coral and bermuda bay cs and birthday bash dsp, Cricut Artiste cartridge(die cut clock), My Favorite Things banner dies, Paper Smooches sentiment, Papertrey Ink partial sentiment, pom pom, gold brad and star from stash

I'm going to pop this into the current Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.  Hope you've had some crafty time this weekend:)

Love seeing that you've returned to the nest a bit, my friend! Also smiled when you just had to get this die........there is always that, right? I love the "time" theme of this very graphic card - great! Hope you are finally going to warm up a bit.
