The Paper Shelter Sweet Birthday Card

This week over at The Paper Shelter challenge, the theme is to make a birthday card for a woman. For my feminine birthday card, I used the digi "Patisserie" by The Paper Shelter and stamped the "Hope your birthday's as sweet as you" sentiment on the inside with a CTMH stamp. 
I made the hinged card base using Sue Wilson's dies from her Spanish collection and white cardstock. Then I die cut the same dies with some pretty pink paper and adhered that to the front. I wanted to create the look of an awning over my pastry shop, so I used dies from Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders 1 to create that effect. I added some die cuts from Memory Box's "Pennington Roses" set below the digi for a little more feminine touch and adhered a die cut "Happy Birthday" from Spellbinders to the top. 
Here's a look at the inside:
