Birthday Tag for a Sketch & Color Challenge

I made this tag for the MojoMonday sketch# 208 here. And I used the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge#169 here. 
The base is Sahara Sand and I cut that out with the Scallop Square Bigz Clear die. I added some dots with my Basic Black Stampin' write marker. I layered a Basic Black piece and a Pool Party piece. I punched a square of the Patterns DSP Neutrals stack of Basic Black with the 1 3/8 inch Square punch. I cut a rectangle of Sahara Sand from the same Patterns DSP and a rectangle of Pool Party DSP from the Domestic Goddess DSP. I stamped the cake from Bring on the Cake in Basic Black and used Pool Party and Sahara Sand ink and blender pens to color it in. I punched a Whisper White flower with the Blossoms Bouquet Triple Layer punch. A Sahara Sand circle was punched with the 3/4 inch Circle punch and a Pool Party Designer Printed Brad is in the center. I popped up the flower with Stampin' dimensionals. Finally, some 3/8 inch Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon finishes it off.
Here's my recipe;
Stamps: Bring on the Cake
Papers: Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Basic Black, Pool Party, Domestic Goddess DSP, Patterns DSP Neutrals stack
 Inks: Basic Black, Pool Party, Sahara Sand
Accessories: Scallop Square Bigz Clear die, Blossoms Bouquet Triple Layer punch, 3/4 inch Circle punch, Pool Party Designer Printed Brad, 3/8 inch Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon, Stampin' dimensionals, 1 3/8 inch Square punch

I like how you broke your card up into 4 panels. Some of the panels resemble fabric! Thanks for playing Create with Connie & Mary!
