The frames will overlay a 600x600 photo that users pick from their social network or camera. Ideally the frame doesn't take up more than 1/4 of the space, there needs to be room for subject of the photo. The frames don't have to be contained to a shape, or connected from top to bottom, they can overlap the photo in creative ways. However, all content must be confined to a 600x600 square. Each frame needs to include the phrase "Happy Birthday" in a fun way, either along the bottom or top of the photo.

Thank you everyone for your submissions so far. After reviewing the entries, we felt it would be valuable to offer some additional feedback.
Some of the things we really like -Designs that include some kind of frame or border, in addition to the text. Partial frames are great -Themed designs, that match texture, shapes, and type with a concept. -Elements that appear to hover over the photo, with a light shadow
Elements that would be great to see -comedic relief, clever, cute, or crass sayings in addition to the happy birthday -profession based ideas (artists, politicians, lawyers, celebrities) -textures on top of the photos
