You're Soy Amazing! Sushi birthday card

Today's sushi birthday card features a digital sentiment and stamps from Prettygrafik's Kawaii Sushi set (my personalized birthday greeting is on the inside). I noticed when getting the link that it's now on sale for only $0.99. Considering the fact that there are 15 digis in this set – 12 images and three sentiments – that's a very good buy indeed!

Prettygrafik sets contain several stamps and I like that. You can layer the PNG images and create scenes, as I've done here. On this card I used four of the stamps to create my main image (this Alpaca birthday card is another example of PNG image layering).  If you're not familiar with PNG images and how to use them, this PNG stamp tutorial is for you.

I hadn't made a gate card in a while, so I decided to do one here. Gate cards look great 'live', but in photographing the card I was reminded why it's been so long since I've done one...they do not photograph easily. Papers here are digital freebies from Pixel Scrapper – Sushi Paper set by Kayl Turesson. I used some of my favorite crinkled paper ribbon and enamel dots for embellishment.
