Happy Birthday dear Emer...
Happy Birthday to you!
There were more songs in my head like "99 Red Balloons", but as there was only one on the card, I chose to be super original with Happy Birthday to You! I love this image by Saturated Canary, the eyes are fabulous. I kept singing "Don't you make my brown eyes blue", but this is a happy card. I have used Jen's sketch from Sketch Saturday for the layout of the card. I felt it made the card look like a present all wrapped up for a party. Initially I intended a large star with happy birthday on it where the ribbons meet, but I loved the deeper colour where they crossed over each other & wanted to leave it showing. So with some masking of the Paper Smooches happy birthday, we have a lovely right aligned sentiment.
