Happy birthday to YOU! If it's your birthday anyway. ;)

Remember THIS card with basically the same background; I mentioned I made several different backgrounds using Oxide Inks and this was another one I had ready to put to use. I pulled out some new to me designer paper from Reverse Confetti and cut this big ole YOU out of fun foam and one layer of the designer paper, adhered together and coated with glossy accents. I added the 'happy birthday to' with Hero Arts intense black ink stamped a couple times since the paper was water color paper.

Look at that shimmery pink envie from SSS! *SWOON*

The rest, I kept pretty simple, added a strip of glitter black paper and more of the designer paper to finish it off, a totally CAS (clean and simple) card!

Thanks for stopping by, I love when you visit!
