Happy Birthday

Happy Monday!
A great long weekend but a busy one!   Lots happening!  But I had to take a bit of time to make a birthday card for a birthday mid week.  So my friend inspired me to join in the JustRite challenge!  I love this set from JustRite!  This week's challenge was to use negative space;  JustRite Friday Challenge #126 - Don't Be So Negative!

When I first decided to do this challenge,  the first  die;  memory box Flutter Vine. # 98334; came to mind.    I had seen someone else use it with the negative space idea.  Sorry I don't have the link/credit!  The shimmer sheets also was hanging there trying to inspire! 

I couldn't find a shade of pink or yellow paper right off, without digging into the boxes of paper, so I decided to stamp the background! 

Colored the images with my fabulous Viva paper soft-color and Brilliance Thyme and purple inks that are from Nika's art store in Windsor NS.
 Quick job!

 The background wasn't stamped to perfection by no means!  Always in a hurry! 

The Elizabeth Craft shimmer sheetz ss-0107 green iris was embossed after die cut.

I also would like to enter in the cheery Lynn challenge; "anything goes".

Thanks for looking! Have a great week everyone!  Best of Luck!

 (I hope "Bertha"  comes with no wind and light rain!!!.....)
