Happy Birthday meets Background Stamping

The challenge over at Embellish Magazine this week was to use the color scheme in the inspiration piece below as well as to create your own background.  I love to create my own background paper with Clear & Simple Stamps.  They are my absolute favorites to work with and I love how this background turned out on this card.

I've been wanting use this yellow felt that I bought from Papertrey Ink for awhile now and decided to use it with my peony nestabilities.  Not sure I love how it turned out with the grey center and button, but hopefully someone at the craft fair I'm doing in November will fall in love with them.

I chose to use the FTL109 sketch for this card, I will be using a lot of their sketches for my holiday fair as I love the clean & simple style of them.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
