Two Birds With One Stone

Today's card came together so easy, it was complete in about 15 minutes.
I have been looking and thinking about Pals Paper Art, PPA193- Sketch, also Just Add Ink # 204.....Colour Challenge since Friday.
For the back ground I have stamped the thin lines stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set using a Stampin' Dazzle Marker which is now retired.
Here's the sketch.
 The colours are Pistachio Pudding, Crumb Cake and Gold.
I have made this card for a friend whose birthday that was yesterday, yeah I hear you I only made it today but better later than never.
Hadleigh shares the same birthday as Samuel, we have always said they are twin even though Hadleigh is older.
The 3 hexagons are from Six-Sided Sampler Stamp Set, I dusted them with Gold Embossing Powder and used the Heat Tool to emboss them.
The happy birthday is from Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set it is cut out using the matching Bitty Banners Framelits.
I used the Honeycomb Embossing Folder and Big Shot on the Crumb Cake panel, I wanted to give it a vintage look so I rolled the edges I also rough up the edge of the banner.
For the inside I did the same as I did on the Pistachio Pudding card, the stamped wish big from A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set in pistachio Pudding Ink.
