Birthday Greetings

For the card today I'm combining two challenges:

Color My Heart Color Dare - Outdoor Denim, Lagoon and Pear and CAS-ual Friday - wallpaper:

When I saw the Color Dare challenge, I really wish I had the Later Sk8r paper. Had I received my Workshop on the Go, I'd use the diamond plate stamp to play with these colors.  Background stamps can do quite a lot of fun things!  Oh well, when I get it I'll play with it.

So I've decided to make my background using an old stamp from a Stamp of the Month and that background has become my wallpaper card:

It may not be my favorite wallpaper, but I sure like this color combo.  I never knew that they blend so well and make a great masculine card!

Thanks for stopping by!
