Hello and welcome to the MFP May Hop!  Oh boy, do we have some trees for you this week.  MFP has fabulous stamp sets for creating scenes and this one is no exception.  A sponged a band for my trees and then stamped them over the band.  I used a couple of markers to add a bit more color and then stamped my sentiment.  When you see the whole set, you will see that the Happy Birthday sentiment is stacked.  I used my craft and rubber scissors to do a little bit of elective surgery.  Another plus for photopolymer stamps is that you can align them very easily in their original orientation.  

Let's get started!! Here's the Design Team:


Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of the hop and come on back tomorrow for more creative fun!!

So pretty, Toni! You and Pat must have had some telepathy going this month. Your sponged band looks really nice behind the scenery.
