Happy Birthday

How lucky was I that I got to celebrate my birthday in Jamaica this year.  Well technical, my birthday was the day I left but we still celebrated it the night before.  The resort gave me a birthday card that day and I thought it was the sweetest thing.

So I brought it home with the expectation that I would use it on my layout.  Now the outside of the cards was a little plain but the inside was so pretty so I thought why not use it open.  In fact, why not make it my title!  So I cut some coordinating paper to fit on either side of it to fill the whole top of my layout and to act as an anchor on my layout.  I think it turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself!  And in order to not distract from it I kept my photos and remaining paper pieces very linear.  So cute and it was so quick to do!

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee - Soiree Collection; Embellishments: Basic Grey - Fort Lauderdale Chipboard Elements, My Minds Eye - Die Cut Ticket, Pink Paislee - Hometown Summer Die Cut Strips and Journalling Spot.
