Here's the card that I came up with:
I've been in a card making rut and I'm really hoping this class will give me a boost. I'm anxious to start today's assignment. I hope to share it with you soon. Thanks for stopping by.
Stamps: The Angel Company - Happy Birthday sentiment from 'Swirly Sayings' and the birthday hats are also from a TAC set...but I can't remember the name.
Ink: Onyx Black VersaFine for the sentiment and Tuxedo Black Momento ink for the birthday hats.
