    I am trying to create a birthday card. When I insert a clip art background, I
    can't seem to type in a message over the background. I can put it over the
    clip art or below it, but not ON it.

  2. Either format the clip art as Behind Text or insert a text box (In Front of
    Text, No Fill, No Line) on top of the clip art.
