Happy, happy, happy birthday

I've been so sick with an allergy/sinus/cold infection that I haven't gotten one project done at all this week.  :(  Good news is that it's finally clearing up and it doesn't look like I've passed it on to the kids (a first)!
A Friends with Flair and nothing to share...time to look back through projects I've forgotten to link up.
This was a card I'd submitted a few months back and it didn't get picked and then I just completely forgot to blog it.
It uses 3 different Unity stamp sets - Echo Writer, Sweet & Sour Soup (happy & birthday) and Love in Return (banner).  I inked the happy up with 5 different distress inks and stamped it multiple times to make the background.  The PP is My Mind's Eye.  I distressed the edges and folded up one corner to show the dot theme that I used for color inspiration.  One of the happys is popped up for dimension.  This isn't the best photo of it but I've already given the card away so no detail shots.
Wishing you all a wonderful and crafty weekend!

Glad you are feeling a bit better. Head colds can really "suck" all the energy out of you!

I really like your "Happy" background. I'm sure that took a little bit of concentration!

And I just dig typewriters right now, so YAY for that...always gets my attention.

Thanks for dropping by my blog... I thought I'd return the favour and got to see this great card! The repeating sentiments look great, and having the one corner turned up makes for a fun design element. Glad to hear you're on the mend and avoided infecting the family!
