Colorful Squares Bday

I made two birthday cards to celebrate Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #400. I painted simple squares using watercolor to create backgrounds for the cards. I then die cut "happy birthday" three times using white paper and glued them all together and hid under the real "happy birthday" die cut from the squared backgrounds. The squared backgrounds are so easy to make but so pretty.

This is the first card. Click here to see the second card. I painted the squares using colors from the challenge #362 cue card and some other colors. 

Here is a 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 #362.
