Waves of inspiration Stamp Set – Happy Birthday Card

Hello and welcome to my blog!  I hope your here to get some inspiration for creating cards!

For this card I combined the Waves of Inspiration Bundle with the Stitched with Whimsy Dies.  Now I love the Waves of the Ocean Designer Series Paper but I wanted to use a different color palette so I created my own design for the background.

Hope you like this idea and will recreate it!

Here are the card cuts, instructions and supply list:
