Happy Birthday to You!

I've been making lots and lots of birthday cards lately for people - I suppose it makes sense, everyone has one, right? :) The following card is one I have made for a little girl, turning four, who likes trains. I hope she also likes pink and cupcakes!

Happy Birthday to You!

I used a stamp by Inkadinkado for the clouds of smoke coming out of the engine by selectively inking one circle at a time. It was fiddly, and I wasn't sure whether it was going to turn out, so I did it on a piece of the same cardstock as the base layer of the card, just in case I screwed it up! I then layered with it giving it the 'white on white' look that just makes me so happy ;)

I liked the look of the scallops without a sentiment cluttering everything up, so I stamped one on the inside:
