One layer happy birthday

Hello! I made this card for my father-in-law's 60th birthday! I also made it with Kristina Werner's one layer card challenge in mind. I am not sure if it counts as one layer though. It is completely flat but there are stickers on it ... hmmm. I will definitely try again!
I love that Pink Paislee tape on the bottom. That stuff is fun! :)
I made the background with Papertrey's Text Style and Distress Inks. I then stamped Practicing Creativity's Key to My Heart set in Versamagic ink. I love this stuff! I think it's so cool that the color is bold but the background still shows through. The letter stickers are Cosmo Cricket and so fun. It feels like playing Scrabble or something. Hehe!
Card stock: Neenah Paper Environment (desert storm)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (background basics: text style), Practicing Creativity Designs (key to my heart)
Ink: Distress Ink (vintage photo), Versamagic (turquoise gem, red magic)
Stickers: Cosmo Cricket (tiny type), Pink Paislee (licorice tape)
Thank you so much for visiting!

    The colors against the background are perfect : )

  11. Very cool! I love how you used C's set with just one stamp of each... it is hard for me to line up... this is a great solution for me ... the crooked queen!
