Color me Birthday!

Saw this idea on Pinterest... it stuck in my head for days.  I finally had to try this concept, but I no longer have the source - so this is my version of what I remember.  If you originated this idea, or you know who did... PLEASE contact me - I want to give credit for this beautiful, colorful, simple idea!

Went thru my scrap paper and found this combination of colors that work pretty well together on the A2, black base card.  Because I could not find an orange in the color I wanted - I cut a strip of white CS and used a Copic pen to color the strip.  I then used the Creative Punches Letter Punch Set and added the 'HAPPY'.  The 'Birthday' at the bottom and inside sentiment are from the same rubber stamp from a 1992 Country Impressions release - they are embossed in white.
What a fast, easy, colorful idea - and will be good for male or female and teenager to well seasoned folks.
