Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday Card
I suddenly decided at 10.30 I wanted to make a card with die cuts for a challenge. Now to find it!!!

Anyway I have used a Papertrey Die cut for the main shape, once in grey and once in gold then inlaid the gold back in. I really like the look but a photo at 11pm does not really lend itself to great light. The Happy Birthday is actually cut out in a Teal blue card stock and the dots are the same colour but the photo has ended up washing out the sentiments and darkening the enamel dots. Lesson for today - craft and photos during the day or at least wait till daylight for photos.

The Birthday die is also Papertrey and has a stamp to match it. The Happy die which I feel really suits it is a Whimsey Stamps Die.I have layered each die up 3 times to give a bit of life to the words.

I found the Challenge - its on at Happy Little Stampers HLS May CAS Challenge As usual being fairly new to this I hope this fits the bill.

I hope you enjoy your visit here.
