Mega Happy Birthday

I was lucky to win a £20.00 gift voucher at AAA Cards for an online store of my choice.  I chose Bumbleberry Crafts  and added a little extra money (as you do!) to buy some Altenew Mega stamps and dies.  I made this super quick card for one of my teenage great nephews.

I trimmed the turquoise star paper, layered it onto black textured card and attached it to the card front.  I die cut 'happy' three times from black card and embossed one of the images.  I layered the die cuts with the embossed one on the top and attached them across the card.  I stamped the sentiment onto white card and used the end of the fishtail flag die to cut around the edge.  The sentiment was then layered onto black card and attached below the die cut 'happy'.

To make this card I used:
     7" x 5" white matt card blank
     Altenew 'Mega Happy' and My Favorite Things 'Fishtail Flags' dies
     Altenew 'Mega Greetings 2' stamp
     Versafine Onyx Black ink
     Lili of the Valley 'Galaxy Stars' paper
     Black textured and white matt card

I am entering the following challenges:
     NBUS - Challenge 15
     Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
     The Male Room - Use Die Cuts

Such a pretty starry LOTV paper Kath and love the contrast with the large black die cut sentiment and then the black on white inked portion and the lovely black mats finish the look perfectly. x
