 It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.

The challenge this time is: Birthday Wishes
And here is my card for your inspiration:
I made a tri-fold card.  I just think this image is perfect for doing some fussy cutting and allowing another panel to show through.  I printed the image out, colored it and fussy cut out all the blank spaces creating the first panel.  In the photo below you can see the dimension it gives as it starts to open.
Opening the front panel, you see the second panel.  I stenciled on some clouds that show through to the front.  The "It's your day . . . " shows through to the front as well, while the "Happy Birthday" sentiment is hidden behind the hammock until you open it.
The second panel opens up to a space for the birthday greeting and where you can write your message.
I think the last time I used this image, I created a Father's Day card.  The image is really perfect for so many masculine card occasions.  

I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.

This is an adorable card. I love that the stenciling is just subtle in the background then really shows up on the inside of the card. Well done. Thanks for joining our challenge at Use Your Stuff and hope to see you again.
