Happy Birthday

Hi Folks
Thanks for popping by today and hope you are all well.  I went for a job interview yesterday and was offered the job there and then.  Not sure when I start yet as they need to sort out references etc but looking forward to a new challenge.  Will have to get myself sorted into some sort of routine now lol.

Today I thought I would share a quick and easy birthday card that will suit both male and female recipients.

I used a large Happy Birthday stamp from Woodware for this card.  I stamped the image several times onto different patterned paper and then pieced together the letters.  The backing paper is mounted onto black card.  No further embellishments added apart from some faux stitching.  Of course you could jazz it up with buttons, flowers etc if you wished.

Would love to know what you think.  I do appreciate all the comments and support you give me.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Not Just Cards - ATG
Artistic Inspirations - ATG

Creative Moments - ATG
