Embellish Challenge

It's another Embellish Challenge time! .  The theme is Background Stamping ( love that!) and the sponsors is Hero Arts (that's always a great incentive for me)!
First I looked at my stash of Hero Arts stamps, this cute set Life of The Party Birthday is calling my name...The color combo is very playful, so I think this might work! I started with stamping my own background with the windmill and party hat image and this is it.
Happy Birthday
It's fun to create your own background. I think the key is to keep experimenting. Thanks so much for stopping by!
