Fast and Fun Happy Birthday

I wanted to share with you one of the other birthday cards I had made this weekend.  It's not often I make something so fast and simple, but I was dying to try this idea that I had seen someone else use.  They had new Happy Birthday die cut, and they stamped on the white paper after cutting it.  I used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp on another card, so I tried those flowers for a fun image.  The flowers were small enough that they fit nicely on the delicate die cut.  

I found inspiration in a couple places for this card.  Just Add Ink's color challenge #362 was for Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Peekaboo Peach.  Hand Stamped Sentiment #265 had a layout that worked for my card, and surprisingly CAS-ual Fridays' challenge 175 was to use patterned paper.  Just Us Girls #396 wants you to use die-cuts. Since it is a birthday card, I will play along at The Paper Players Theme Challenge #347.  See, they practically made the card for me!
I just had to share this fun birthday card with you, and after I swap tomorrow, I can share another with you.  Just you want and see!

  2. The swirly little flowers all over the die cute sentiment really add so much depth and interest Mary. I love the effect! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  3. This is so pretty Mary Alice! I love how feminine your beautiful sentiment looks with the addition of the stamped flowers - such a fabulous idea! Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.

  5. Wow, great use of pattern papers. I love the happy birthday die you used.

  6. I love how you've stamped the flowers on the h-b di cut & created a shadow layer. Looks so effective on the patterned paper. Your little embellishments were a perfect finishing touch too. Glad you could play along with us at JAI.

  7. I have not played with this thinlit yet! Love how you cut it out of patterned paper. Thanks for the idea. So glad you played with us at HSS.


  8. Love how you layered the sentiment on top of the yellow to give it some contrast. Thanks for playing along with our patterned paper challenge at CAS-ual Fridays :)
