Statement Sentiment - Happy Birthday

Good morning! I have a VERY quick card I put together the other day for a couple of challenges. This uses a fabulous large sentiment from Mama Elephant - such an amazing way to make a super quick and amazing card without too much time, work, or embellishing needed!

First challenge I made this for was the current Runway Inspired Challenge:

And I also wanted to join in to Virginia's View Challenge #7 - Pattern Paper:

Love how a simple sentiment and some lovely pattern paper can come together so quickly to make a card. My pattern paper is from Glitz Designs and Crate Paper. I added a panel of vellum over the top with my sentiment heat embossed in black, then machine stitched the layers together, leaving some loose threads. Finished off with some good tacky adhesive tape, and attached just the top of the panel to my white cardbase, leaving the rest to hang free.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!!!
