Birthday In Blue

Got a little birthday card to show today and I’ve used the theme of this week’s Shades of Blue challenge from Happy Daze on Facebook as inspiration for this one.

I’ve been making backgrounds again, this time I’ve used the paper collage with acrylic paint instead of ink as in the Nature inspired card I showed last Friday.

A number of folk have asked how I make these backgrounds so I’m planning to take some photos of the process and get them posted on the blog – so keep your eyes peeled if you are interested!

Have a great Wednesday.
