Happy Birthday Mr President

Here is the final photo:

I started with these images:

This was taken at my wedding (I was lip singing "To Be With You" by Mr. Big":

I got the Happy Birthday font on Font Squirrel - it's called "Nexa Rust" and the "to you" font is Futura. I actually made two layers of the Happy Birthday text in different colors and then slightly shifted the positioning. Then, I grouped the layer and duplicated it 3x - I was  going for a slightly retro vibe.

I cut myself out, then I went back in and did that little space in between my body and the microphone cable. I then did about .5 in feathering.

For the background I lowered the opacity and used the "hard mix" layer style --- I think that's what it's called.

Anyway, I had fun tinkering with this.
