Happy Birthday Papertrey Ink! card #1 {birthday WISHES}

Hello!!!  This is post number 1 of 3 today in honor of the Stamp Designers Challenge at Papertrey Ink!  It's anniversary time so if you haven't checked it out yet, there are so many AMAZING giveaways going on over there!  I am trying to increase my chances with some card project entries today.  :)  The stamp designers have put together free digital images for us to download and use on our projects.  Each project gives an entry for an AWESOME prize package of designer's favorite stamp sets.  (crossing fingers here for sure!) .  My first offering uses this cute image from Melissa Bickford!
The birthday wishes sentiment is black and white leaving it open for color customization.  I was inspired by Melissa's version which had alternating letter colors.  I grabbed a scrap of DP for the backdrop and colored the digital image with coordinating markers.  Oh!  And a little stickles for the candle flame.  A quick bow from PTI's spring moss swiss dots is the finishing touch on this sweet card.

Thanks Papertrey Ink for all the inspiration and fun!!!
