ANOTHER Happy 10th Birthday

My card is a tall A5, standing 8 1/4" high.
I used the Paper Smooches Pinked Circles Dies and Birthday Words Dies.
The sentiment is two die cuts adhered together (blue then white on top) using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.  To give it a little more contrast to the patterned paper, I layered the sentiment over some vellum and secured the panel in place with brads.
NOTE: the sentiment is a very delicate die cut and I used the "negative" to ensure all the layers were aligned perfectly on top of each other.  I also used the negative when I was adhering the letters to the vellum so that all the letters were spaced & aligned perfectly.

Here is a close-up of the sentiment panel.

The pinked circles are layered on foam sheets for extra dimension.
The patterned panel is also layered on a foam sheet and the layered banners secured in place with foam squares, so they have dimension and sit level with the sentiment panel.
We have two birthday boys turning 10 within a week of each other, so this is the 2nd card I created using this design, I just mixed the colours around a bit from the 1st one found here.
