The sentiment stamp would not fit onto the cloud punch-out, so I first masked the word Birthday using scotch tape before inking the word Happy; after inking, I pulled the tape off and stamped Happy then masked Happy and inked Birthday, pulled the tape off and stamped Birthday onto the cloud punched shape.  The "trick" is to remember to pull the tape off before stamping!

Here's the Design Team:
Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.
