I ended up playing around with some of my new stamps and dies from Concord and 9th.
This is the first card that I can remember using washi tape on. I bought a pretty pack of coordinating Recollections washi tape at Michael's a few months ago. When I was trying to come up with an idea, I remembered that I had this tape and decided to try it for a quick and easy background. I die cut happy with a scrap of metallic gold paper that I had laying next to my Big Shot. I cut the banner from the Happy Card Frames Dies and stamped birthday using Close to My Hearts Hollyhock ink and the stamp from the Happy Words bundle (linked above) set from Concord and 9th.
