Birthday Challenge

It’s challenge time over at ABC Toys and Crafts and this month’s challenge is Happy Birthday!

I created this birthday card using My Cute Stamps Elegant Bird Cages stamp set, stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black (my favorite black ink) and colored it in with copic markers.  I went with a circle theme with pattern paper from Echo Park and my Circle Nestabilities.

Happy Birthday
