Introducing Uniko's Big and Bold Happy

Good morning peeps.
I'm here with the first of the reveals of this month's Uniko release.
This is Big and Bold HAPPY stamp and matching die set.
Here's my inspiration card.

I remembered a card form a while ago that featured a stacked die cut and 'exploding' layered outer. This is my take on it.
I decided to just use the two dies for this and not the large stamped happy. I rifled through my stash and selected some blues that worked together and cut panels to A6 size. Then, using the shadow die, I cut the happy from them. 
I cut each piece in half and started stacking each colour layer together on a white background card. In the middle of the stacked layers, I placed the smaller die cut happy, cut from the darkest blue.
To finish. I trimmed my finished panel and stamped the birthday element from the stamp set in Paris Dusk Memento ink.
Check out the rest of the DT below to see what they have done with the new stamps and dies.
