Birthday Wishes

I need a few cards for my son's teenage friends so I decided to use my Memory Box Happy Birthday Background stamp to make a monochrome card, I think it is suitable for either a male or female.


My papers are from Bearly Mine Designs and I cut the two little banners with my Die-namics Fishtail Flag dies - some pearls from my stash finish this simple card.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Love to Scrap Challenge 46 - Anything Goes
Not Just Cards Challenge 11 - Always Anything Goes
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge 2 - Anything Goes
Scrapbooker PhD Challenge 19 - Masculine Birthday + Die Cut

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in.
