MIM #146


Just back from a wonderful family vacation and couldn't wait to play along with PTI, 
and Ashley, challenging us to make angled backgrounds!

Her tutorial is here:

And here is my card.

I angled my scraps of paper on a Tipped Top Die, 
then added a double layer of 'Happy' and 'birthday, all from PTI.
as are the card stocks. 
The larger stars are also from the TT die, the little stars from Super star border.
I actually think this will mail without extra postage,
yeah!

The challenge runs through Sunday,
come check out what everyone has done. So many great ideas!

  16. Let's make this card of yours the inspiration for the new kids' room at your house. Wait, are you remodeling? I think you should now. We need to find bedding with those colors and patterns because I want to look at it all the time. Adorable! And white beadboard as the background...
