The Card Concept - Tropical Birthday

Can you believe it's Monday again? Since it's the beginning of the year I've been getting my house in order.. you know going for all my annual check ups, and trying to get a little more organized. DH had to run out to work yesterday - unusual for a weekend so I got a little time to play.
Today I'm joining The Card Concept with this cute challenge. Isn't this little smiling pineapple cake adorable? I was inspired by the striped background, colorful decorations that remind me of flowers and of course that adorable pineapple. I think we all have a pineapple stamp in our stash somewhere so I hope you play along too!
I started with the Reverse Confetti Pineapples Aplenty surrounded by the Garden Bunch Flowers and Love Blooms Foliage.
I chose the Striped Frame to mimic the striped background on the inspiration photo. I added adhesive foam to the back of the center square so it's lifted from the flat card base. 
The sentiment from Birthday Wishes is stamped directly on the raised panel. I had to do this twice.. the first time I didn't stamp it close enough to the top and my flowers were falling off the bottom of the card.
The Garden Bunch flowers are my favorite florals from Reverse Confetti. They'reeasy to stamp and look fussy.
I'm calling this one "Tropical Birthday", and as for style I think I'm going Clean and Layered. Feel like playing along? You can get all the details and link up your card here at The Card Concept!
