Baja Wasabi anyone?

Hey there peeps!  It is one cold day in Southern CA today.  Temperature-wise, it really wasn't too bad - 53 degrees - but it's super windy, which makes it chilling to the bone when you're outside!!  I'm sure you East Coast folks are getting a kick out of that comment.  But, for this Southern California girl, it sure is COLD {I'm a wimp}! 

Anyway, how about some Baja Wasabi for you?  Doesn't that sound like a fun sushi restaurant name?  For all I know, it could be.  What I'm actually referring to are the fun colors of this birthday card I'm sharing today.  How do you like the little snippet?  Wanna see the full card?
I've had the color green on the brain, since it's March and St. Paddy's day is coming soon, which also coincide's with my Mom's birthday.  What do you think of the card?  Does the Baja Breeze/Wild Wasabi combo work for you?  I have to admit it took me a while to put this card together.  I had creative block after I made my lattice square embossed focal point.  In fact, I needed to step away for a while because I was stuck!  Then, it finally came together after I decided I wanted to work in more of the Trellis Bigz die in Baja Breeze.  Next thing you know, I'm on a roll.  I layered the Baja Breeze Trellis on Whisper White and then trimmed the end into a pennant shape.  Finally, I topped it with a cute little flower from the Fun Flowers die and then added my Happy Birthday sentiment stamp from the Create a Cupcake set.  Hope you like it!  I really would love to hear what you think!  Here's the recipe for you:
{Baja Wasabi Birthday}
*Stamp Set: Create a Cupcake
*Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, Crumb Cake
*Inks: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
*Accessories: Trelli Bigz die, Lattice Square embossing folder, Fun Flowers Bigz XL die, Sweet Stitches Fabric Brads, Vintage Trinkets brad, Jewelry Tag punch
Thanks for visiting.  Hope you had a great Monday.! I'll be back tomorrow with my card for this week's Hand Stamped Sentiment challenge!  See you in a bit :)
