Then I coloured it with promarkers , the sentiment is from craftwork cards.  Papers are from a 5x5 paper pad but I have lost the cover so I am sorry I can not remember the name only I do remember buying it from The Works.

I cut a aperture using a Memorie box stitch edged square die, I added some peanut brittle memento ink to one side of a happy birthday embossing folder, placed a piece of white card in the middle and rang it through my spellbinder machine to emboss it. I cut this to size to fit in the aperture. The image is a Penny black stamp call Birthday Dog which is new to me, that I coloured with my promarkers , the Happy Birthday stamp is from PSX  I have had for years...
