The newest Make It Monday challenge is to create a custom background by repeated stamping of images that are not intended as backgrounds. I noticed recently that I need to beef up the supply of birthday cards in my stash, so I used the cute little cake image from Tag-Its #1, which I stamped in alternating staggered rows of Orange Zest and Hawaiian Shores. Then I added the repeated "happy birthday" sentiment, also from Tag-Its #1, in green. The "eat cake" sentiment (it seemed the obvious choice, lol) is from 2011 Birthday Tags, and is stamped on a Label Basics circle, along with the coordinating little curly strip from Tiny Treats: Birthday.
I attached the circle to a Doily Details doily, tied on a Tiny Tag, and added a Hawaiian Shores button and twine. The tag is popped up on dimensional adhesive.
Thanks for looking!
