I used some patterned kraft paper I won a while ago. I can't remember who makes it, though. I cut two pieces and adhered to either side of my white card base. Then I took some (pre) die cut letter in a reddish orange and adhered them along the white card base edge. Lastly, I used some white letterstickers for the birthday. A really quick and easy card to make but with that cool patterned kraft paper I think it's quite visually interesting.
Going to link up to the following challenges:
Seize the Birthday - anything goes (no toppings this week)

CAS-ology - "Let's Celebrate". It's their 100th challenge!
Addicted to Stamps and More - it's their 100th challenge and their second birthday! Inspiration photo:
I don't know how many cards I'll be posting the next few weeks. With our new puppy and Donovan being on summer break, I've got my hands full! I'll probably go into crafty withdrawal! I'll still have my Inkspirational post though. Whew! The outlook is not all bleak! LOL. Our puppy, Summer, is doing quite well. Crate training is going very well and she's getting the idea of going to the bathroom outside already! Here are a few pictures...
Isn't she sweet? Anyway, that's all for now. Thanks for visiting and have a super day!
