Determined to give it a try, I made my own "background" by stamping the sentiment repeatedly. Here's what I have made:
And yes, I stamped the sentiment "Happy Birthday" 20 times - 5 times on each cardstock. Good thing is that clear stamp allows easy alignment so it actually didn't take that long. Of course, had I done a better job at planning where the balloons would go, I wouldn't have to stamp so many times on the colored cardstock.
A happy dance for understanding the reason for poor quality pictures for the past few days. Ever since I took pictures of my newborn nephew, I forgot to change the settings. Oops. I blame the cold I caught on Easter, which left my brain working in a slow motion.
My card is entering the following challenges:
Crafts 2 Celebrate - Anything Goes
613 Create - Anything Goes (I've picked A2, birthday, metallic)
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Anything Goes
Penny Black - Birthdays
