I painted the wood veneers with acrylic paint to get them the colors I was looking for, and also masked off part of the sentiment stamp so that I could just stamp the "happy day" part. Rather than doing a vertical card like in the sketch, I made it horizontal, in addition to making the card smaller than the standard 4.25 by 5.5 (I sized it to fit the puffy scallop sticker that I wanted to use).

SUPPLIES:

Paper: Allison Kreft for Echo Park - Everyday Eclectic - Kraft Doily patterned paper; SEI (gray patterned paper - it's really old from when I first started scrapbooking)
Embellishments: Pinkfresh Studio (washi tape, puffy scallop sticker, triangle wood veneer, enamel frame); Studio Calico (bird wood veneer)
Stamps: Pinkfresh Studio sentiment stamp
Ink: acrylic paint from Michael's and Jo-Ann; Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink
