Loved the colour combination in the inspiration photo and used the chalkboard as my springboard for this card. Created my own chalkboard with the Happy Birthday message on it, added a doily to girly it up a bit as well as a medallion as per the photo. Used the stitched rectangle border as per the one around the graphic and added a few hearts for good measure.
