Darling Donkey

 Back in the comfort zone today with a square card using an idea from Stacey Marsh spotted recently on YouTube.  She had made a rainbow striped background by stamping with a striped stamp which I don't have but I did come across this zig-zag stamp in my stash which I thought would do the trick and luckily I had the right ink pad colours to give the rainbow effect. Amazed I managed to keep the lines reasonably straight!! My card is similar in style to hers but I've used a donkey image stamped, coloured and fussy cut.  The 'Happy' word used some die cut letters and the 'birthday' word was stamped onto a die cut strip of card. - a scattering of sequins and that is job done for a fun birthday card.

A grey and damp morning outside so I think time in the craft room is called for today

Image - from ~Darling Donkeys stamp set Stampin' Up
Large Letters - cut using dies from Sizzix alphabet
Sequins - die cut in silver card using a die I've had for some time
