Happy Birthday

I hope this picture is ok for you all.  I had to lighten it up a little because of bad lighting when I took the picture.  This card is pretty simple, but I like it.  The red and teal background is made using We R Memory Keepers washi tape.  I just alternated between the two colors.  Then I made the star with an oldy but goody- George and Basic Shapes- with three different sizes of stars cut.  

I cut the strip of paper at the bottom by hand, and then stamped in teal ink using My Craft Spot's "Birthday Wishes" stamp set.  To finish it off, I used three blue skittles in the top cornerDo you know how cool skittles are?  I got them from Carri at Double Click ConnectionsTo start off with I just bought 6 colors because I wanted to give them a try, but I will be back for more!
