A Birthday Sundaes Challenge Entry

It is Thursday already--My time in Hartford is going well. Nice day to be outside at the golf course today.
It rained just a bit late afternoon, only to reveal not jut a rainbow, but a full, complete double rainbow. Don't get to see that very often. It was spectacular.

So, here is my little creation today from my hotel.

I had cut the base card and lion before I left home, but had no idea what I would to with them.
Well, Birthday Sundaes has a challenge to use green, orange and white this week.

Fortunately, I brought MPS Spectacular Sayings along with me that had this Birthday sentiment.

Here's how I did it...

Paper is from my scrap stash
Base card cut at 4.25" from Birthday Bash
Lion/layers cut at 2.73" from Life's a Party
Hat/layers cut at 1.36" from Birthday Bash
Tag, left over from my stash of cuts that I did not use. It was originally printed and cut with the Imagine More cartridge and then was trimmed to fit the sentiment.
Sentiment from MPS Spectacular Sayings
String, Chalk and a metal clip from my stash
