Happy Happy Happy Birthday

 I used the Biggest Wish stamp set this week to create my card background.  It forms part of the sentiment as well as the main pattern - it's a neat trick to keep up your sleeve for the times you want a card without an image.

I picked out four ink pads and my shammy so that I could change the colour up as I went.  Then all I did was plonk my first HAPPY down, cleaned off the stamp, inked it in a different colour, and turned the stamp so that it lined up to the first one at about a 90 degree angle.  Then I did this repeatedly until the page was covered with HAPPYs of all different colours all slotting in together.

I fussy cut the birthday out and added some dimensionals behind it to stand off the page and snipped off a bit of coordinating open weave ribbon to add to the birthday theme.

I didn't want to leave the envelope blank so I added a few HAPPYs to just a third of the envelope flap.  To have covered the whole thing seemed a bit much.  I like the tapered off look it gives.

Best thing with this design is that you can change up the colours to suit your taste!  You could even use a different word.  I got the idea for it from a card Christine Wrede made (she used the HALLO stamp from the German set) - with thanks!
