Happy Birthday

I made this card for the Seize the Birthday 'Travel' challenge.  I'm also entering Sparkles Monthly Challenge 'Use Dies or Punches', the Dies R Us' Anything Goes challenge, Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.

Card blank: 6" x 4" white matt
Die: Memory Box 'Grand Happy Birthday'
Card: Rust texture, white matt
Paper: First Edition 'Man Made'

I trimmed the paper, layered it onto rust card and attached it to the card front.  I die cut 'Happy Birthday' from white card, trimmed the edges and attached it to the lower edge of the card leaving an equal border around the edge.  I then die cut 'Happy Birthday' from rust card and inlaid the die cut pieces.

Those sentiment dies are really effective and great travel idea with the hot air baloons, sure I have that die somewhere.
