I made two cards with squared backgrounds. This is the second card. Click here to see the first card. This time I painted lavender/purple watercolor stripes instead of solid colors.
For the sentiment, I die cut "happy birthday" three times using the pool/aqua color and glued them all together then hid underneath the real "happy birthday" die cut. You can see the color peeping out from the sides on the close-up.
I am playing along with Cupcake Inspirations the 400th Challenge Birthday with a Twist. They wanted us to combine a birthday theme project with a past Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. I am combining #400 with #262.
