Happy Birthday Card - Blog Hop



Woo hoo! I'm so excited! This is my first time participating in Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop. My fingers are crossed that I've done everything right!

Happy Birthday card - Blog Hop


The challenge was to use text on a card. I used a saying from the Birthday Basics to stamp on a scallop that I punched out of Enchanted Evening cardstock (LOVE the new color!) and then made a flower out of it. For the text on the kraft circle, I lined up many of the Happy Birthday sayings (from Birthday Basics again) on my stamp block & stamped it on the circle. Very fun & easy! Sorry the colors are a bit off. It's really sunny this afternoon and I couldn't get a good pic no matter where I went. Thanks for looking!
