Lawnscaping Challenge #40

Good morning everyone! I hope that everyone is having a good week so far. I'm very excited because after work today, my co-workers are taking me out to dinner! Since my husband and I are moving soon, my co-workers wanted to give me a going away dinner. They're all so sweet!

I have another card to share with you for the current Lawnscaping Challenge!

The challenge was to create your own patterned paper with stamps. Here is my card:

 I used the two birthday hats from Lawn Fawn's "Hats Off to You" stamp set, along with the hearts, stars, and candle stamps from "Bake Me a Cake." I stamped the images all over white card stock and colored the images with markers. I knew I wanted to use black stickers to spell "Happy Birthday," but I didn't want the background to overwhelm the card too much, so I used my Sew Easy tool (it was sew easy to use!) and attached a piece of vellum to the front! What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Tuesday! :)
