TST # 156 - Happy Birthday to Us!

Happy Birthday to US! That is the twist to todays Try Stampin on Tuesday sketch challenge.
Twist:  anything goes, Happy Birthday to US

So with the anything goes, I decided to use some more of my paint chips to create my card.  Yes people when you have to start paying for paint chips, I may be part of the reason.  
Using the scraps from the post yesterday I stamped the paint chips using chocolate chip, and then because of the coating on the paint chips within a few seconds the brown turns to more of a lighter grey colour.  You have to be careful once you have stamped on the paint chips because the ink will smug if you handle it.

The end result is a very simple pastel card with a plain and simple message "Happy Birthday".

Now it's your turn.  Come and join our Birthday party and show us what you got!

Need more inspiration, hop on over to the Try Stampin site and see what the other Great Designers have in store for you.
