Hello Friend, Happy Birthday

Good Morning! 

This card will be entered into the

I created my background with 1/4" strips of card stock 
and Gold Foil Paper, laying that an angle onto a piece
of light layering paper cut a bit smaller than 4" x 5 1/4".
Then I placed a piece of Vellum over the top to 
soften the look.  The Vellum was also embossed 
with a Swiss Dots Embossing Folder.
