Happy Birthday To You

I made this card for my niece's husband's birthday using one of my favourite large stamps.  I'm entering A Gem of a Challenge 'Spots and/or Stripes or Halloween' (I've obviously gone for the spots option), Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge, Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.

Card blank: DL white matt
Stamp: Woodware 'Happy Birthday to You'
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia
Colouring: Sakura coloured pencils
Card: Brown and white matt
Paper: Hot off the Press 'Floral Ultimate Pack'
Other: Brown star button, brown/cream baker's twine

I trimmed the spotty paper and covered the front of the card blank. I stamped the sentiment and stars onto white card and coloured the 'Happy' with shaded of green, blue and beige coloured pencils.  The sentiment was trimmed before being layering onto brown card and attached to the front of the card.  I knotted baker's twine through the star button and attached it with Pinflair glue.
