Happy Birthday To You...

Happy Birthday to you...
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.
