I was inspired by a card on Sarah P blog here and decided to create my own background.
I used stamps from Balloon Celebration stamp set along with tempting turquoise, pumpkin pie, night of navy and Lemon Lime twist ink pads, to create a random pattern on my card stock.
I die cut the front using MFT stitched basic edges.
The sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy and I added some enamel shapes to finish off.
I used the left over card stock to create my second card and die cut the Happy Birthday sentiment, mounted onto a stitched rectangle in Lemon Lime Twist on a card base of Night of Navy, and added some enamel shapes.
I am entering this card into the current challenge over at AAA cards
