I made this card for my friend Katie's birthday. I love this Penny Black stamp as he always makes me feel happy. His cheeky grin and lovely pressie, make it a perfect stamp for Birthday cards.
Sorry, can't remember who makes the background paper but it was appropriate as it had friends sayings all over it and it's bright and bold without being 'too much'.
Added the gold elasticated ribbon which I salvaged from an old christmas card. Coloured the balloons and present to match the background paper and he's done!
