Birthday Tile

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Today I have a birthday card to show you. This faux tile background was actually made a while back and I came across it the other day and figured it was time to put it to good use. The tile background is actually pretty easy to do and I have a couple of tutorials on how it's done..the first one was on my blog, then Splitcoast asked me to do one for them. Here's the one on my blog: Faux Tile Background and here's the one on Splitcoast: Delft Tile Tutorial (and yes, that's actually me talking on the video). They are basically the same so please check them out if you want to see how I did it. 

So after attaching my background to my 4.25 x 5.50 card, I stamped the larger branch on a die cut piece of white card stock using the same rainbow ink pad then die cut a larger fancy label out of vellum. The greeting was stamped on the vellum and I matched up where the branch was underneath and stamped it again on the vellum. I added a few fussy cut butterflies here & there to finish it.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend! Be sure to check out the DRS Thursday Challenge...this week an Inspired by Color Challenge! There's a nice prize involved for one lucky winner!

LOVE your colors today Julie! 2 of my favorites paired together! I checked out your tutorial and you make it look so simple :) A wonderful spring card as I wait for 2-6 inches of snow ;)
