I've made a birthday card using Halloween inspired colors (see photo) and merging two images from the Bugaboo store:  Magical Tidbits Bookshelf and Wizardry Wizard 06.

I made the backgrond keeping the paper in the die while sponging. When that was done I used a stencil anda brush to add some more color to allow the pattern so be subtle and still visible.
I added a birthday greeting and sequin stars.

This card is also for:
Pile It On - #135 Fantasy
Creatalicious Challenges - Make Your own Background
Addicted to Stamps and More - # 261 Make Your Mark
YNS Challenges - #74 Colors/Inspirational Photo
