A Male Birthday Card

Today I have a masculine birthday card to share with you. I thought
I would have another try at making a stencilled background using distress inks.
I have to say I am quite enjoying this technique. I now need to buy some more stencils!

I die cut two of the Happy Birthday's and glued them together.
I used a large 3D foam pad, (positioned under the star) to adhere to the base card.
A fairly quick and easy card to make.

The products I have used:-
Happy Birthday die - Purchased from eBay
Sizzix - Photo Corners #2
Inky Doodles Stencil - No name
Distress Inks

Challenges entered:-
CCEE Stampers - Use a Mask
