Seize the Birthday - Strips

My Triple Easel Card 

Boy, when I do something, I do it BIG!  I have never made an easel card, not sure why I choose a triple one. I probably was thinking that if you can make one, why not a triple.  I was very impressed by this YouTube Video

Our "Toppings" option this time is..Strips

If you're not a toppings kinda person, can just
stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!
Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!  

Here is my card for this challenge, and it was a challenge for me.  

I had some gold striped vellum that I wanted to use on this easel card.  I will show you the layers but remember that I did some paper engineering that was a little different from the video. 
 The first layer with the die, Wishing from Memory box, You is GKD
Next layer  has a Marianne Designs Anjas Square with PTI Scene it Birthday Party and balloons

The last and third layer is just another one the Anja's Square die. 
 Put them all together and you have this triple easel card with a little note on the front. 
I did fit this into a 5 X 7 envelope nicely.  
Be sure to check out the other design team inspirations for you too at Seize the Birthday. 

And Our Surprise Party Guest Trina Pram  
I hope to see you on the blog this challenge and I do appreciate your wonderful comments.
