Happy Stripes

 I've made this kind of card before out of scrappy strips and always feel happy making them.  This one is colourful and bold.  The strips are glued to red card so it shows between the strips for extra boldness and to show up the other colours.

Happy die: Heidi Swapp

Leafy border die: unbranded

Birthday stamp: magazine freebie

Also:  Black Enamel Accents
