Happy happy happy birthday

Hello there, and welcome to a new week, and a post 
for Poppy Stamps' newest challenge,
'Plaid is Rad'
One of my grandsons is celebrating his birthday this week,
and plaid on a boy's card is the perfect inspiration.

And Poppy's Birthday Stack is the perfect die!
I cut it several times in different card stocks, some plaid,
and paper pieced my stack.

Inside I used one of the stacked die cuts, and left the ribbon intact.
PTI: Birthday Style

Both bows recut in red and yellow, and glued only in center,
allowing the bows' ties to be free.

PTI sentiment: Birthday Trio (cut from PTI's Summer Sunrise
 & Smokey Shadow),
and 'happy' stamped 3 times from PTI's Be Happy.

Play along with the Poppy Stamps challenge here:

Have a happy week!
