A simple happy birthday

I used sequin waste as a stencil to make my own background paper.

This card was created using a sheet from Nancy Watt. Once I had made my backing paper it was an easy task to pick out a few elements and stick them down .

UnstampaBelles -  challenge 52 -  Birthday Cake - Now I know I don't have a birthday cake on my card but then neither have any of the design team except Merry so I'm guessing it's just a birthday theme .

Great idea to make your own backing paper - I saw a challenge out there recently that asked for no DP! This would suit it well. It also suits the wild thing theme you have going here Gail - a great take on things. Yes, it is a Birthday Theme rather than a Birthday cake theme - so it suits all round!
Thanks for sharing this with us at Unstamabelles!

Great card - I love the shoes ;-) thanks for joining in UnstampaBelles challenge this month and thanks for bringing our little typo to our attention - it has now been fixed ;-)

Lovely work Gail...a wonderful way to create the background. You are so right about the challenge it is Birthday...I did start with birthday cake but thought that was rather limiting and we want everyone to help celebrate our second birthday. Thanks for joining in this month. :-)

Love your wild birthday card! Such a fantastic background using the stencil.... goes so well with the whole design.
Thank you for joining in a Birthday Celebration with Unstampabelles this month.
