Birthday Wishes by Anabelle O'Malley.

So what happens when you take the photo away from a layout? Anabelle O'Malley took the photos out of Maggie Holmes' layout and used the remaining elements to create a balanced card. She used the same colors, border treatment, and design style as the page. Then, Anabelle placed a birthday cake inside of a circle to mimic the "E" accent piece used on the layout, and used a visual triangle of teal accents just like Maggie did.
