PP347 A Frozen Birthday Treat

I have many stamp sets that are clearly birthday sets but for this 
challenge I thought I would challenge myself by not using them!
I pulled out the under used Mixed Drinks set and went for it!
I started with the drink.  I want it to look tropical and possibly
frozen so I choose Peekaboo Peach for inside the
Basic Gray glass.  I added the little umbrella stamp by coloring it 
with Basic Gray on the stem and Island Indigo on the umbrella.

I then cut it out with the Layering Circles dies 
and then cut from a scrap of card the Island Indigo scallop circle.
However, when I did I thought how cool to put the circle in the middle of the 
negative image.
I layered fun Peekaboo Peach polka dots in the recently retired DSP
behind and on top of more Island Indigo for the base. 
I finished it off with a thick white twine bow!
The sentiment was grabbed from Birthday Banners set!
Head over to thepaperplayers.blogspot.com to play along!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!
