In addition to wonderful concept artists, Stampin' Up! has a team of annual Artisan Designers that span their global market.  These demonstrators submit their work and are chosen based on their individualized style. 

One of those Artisan team members this Allison Okamitsu and I'm always drawn to her creations.  Today's card is what I'm calling a "CASE/tweak" of Allison's original.

I used the new host stamp set called "Pun Intended" and added images from two others sets, Watercolor Wishes (background words) and "Kinda Eclectic" (flash).

I stamped the words "celebrate" in Smoky Slate ink repeatedly as a background.  The "snappy birthday" greeting is part of the Pun Intended stamp set (along with lots of other fun images and witty sayings) and was stamped in Whisper White ink on Basic Black cardstock.  

The new enamel shapes are so much fun to use. Each package includes two different size circles, hearts and stars. These packs are plentiful with 200 total shapes, 40 each in 5 different colors.  I used the Regals assortment on this card.
