Heart 2 Heart - Extra! Extra! Read All About it!

The challenge at Heart 2 Heart this week is Extra! Extra! Read All About it! That can take the form of newsprint, text, important news or another form that you may consider that we may have totally not considered that fits the theme. 
I chose to go with the idea of newsprint but in a very understated manner. If you look carefully at the card I have created, the newsprint is embossed on the lagoon cardstock and that is where it shows up on my creation. A birthday is definitely a newsworthy event but I didn't exactly want to put a banner on the card stating "LOOK HERE - someone is celebrating a birthday" because as some of us get older, I find that fewer and fewer people want attention brought to their birthdays...

So, here is my creation...

Won't you join us at Heart 2 Heart Challenges and show us your interpretation of the theme this week? You have the entire month of May to get your entry in!
