AEI{heart}U Challenge: Birthday

Hi friends!

I couldn't be any more excited for today's post.  First of all, it's Friday, and that's always a good thing around here, but second, we are kicking off the very first AEI{heart}U challenge!  The theme of the first challenge is all about Birthdays and here's my card.

I used the large background builder from Circle It to stamp the polka dot background with pink ink on a white card stock panel.  Next, I inked up the 'Happy' from Fill In the Blank  with yellow, pink and orange ink.  The trick to this for me was using ink cubes, starting with the 'y' and wiping off the stray ink as I worked my way backwards.  I stamped 'birthday' in orange ink and die cut the star from Icon Fill in the Blank Elle-ments die on yellow card stock and attached it to the panel with foam tape. I adhered the completed panel to a pink cardstock base. 

Please check out the AEI{heart}U blog for all the details on this challenge.  You're gonna want a piece of this because the challenge winner gets a free Avery Elle set!  Yay!!!  I can't wait to see what you come up with!  

Thanks for stopping by!
