Big birthday wishes

When I placed my first papertrey ink order last year I ordered the think big birthday sentiments, I knew they were large but had no idea of just how large they were going to be, they were so large they frightened me and I thought I would never use them but after seeing some cards on Jen's blog I decided to make the sentiment more of a focal point and hopefully it worked.

More of those MME snippets, very little left of this paper pad, have loved using it and even the smallest of scraps has been kept.
