PanPastel Happy Birthday Inspiration

Today I'm sharing a Birthday card with a PanPastel background and stamped with Design by Ryn stamps - Leafy Branch, Raindrop Set and Trickling Water.  You can purchase these stamps HERE

Having blended the PanPastels for the background I masked off a square with a Post It note before stamping the leaves and water.

Then I removed the Post It and stamped Happy Birthday into the square and scribbled a frame around it.

The fun bit is the erasing the Pans from the leaves and water - once I'd taken a lot of the colour out I hilighted with a white pen.

You can join in with the Challenge by clicking HERE, you can also see an array of wonderful work from my Teammates. Congratulations to the winner and Top 3 of the Clean and Simple Challenge.

I'd like to enter this card into the Take It Make It Challenge over at Craft Stamper.
