Black and White Birthday

I made this birthday card for my sister in so many ways, Gaylyn! She loves anything french and anything black and white!!! The layout is from Splitcoaststampers challenge SC182. The colors are from for the color challenge CC05 from Splitcoast too! I just love this combo!! First I punched out all the scalloped squares using 2 sizes from the Cuttlebug Scallop Squares dies. I used SU's retired Carte Postal set. I stamped basic black ink on to the whisper white card stock. I also used basic black card stock and marker. I used the saying from the retired It's Your Birthday set. I also used my ticket corner punch for the saying. I then arranged all of the squares, glued them on, and then used dimensionals for the center square. And that was that! I am very pleased with the outcome!!! I hope she likes it too!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!

P.S. She loved it!!! :O)
