Happy Birthday
by Donna

Good morning everybody!

I have a simple birthday card for you today featuring the Happy Birthday Elegant Script die.  By changing the background colors of card, it could be used for a female or male birthday card.

To make this card I sponged white cardstock with Picked Raspberry and Ripe Persimmon Distress inks.  The ink was applied darkest at the top and lightest towards the bottom.  Similar to an ombre effect. I placed a stencil over the inked cardstock and sponged over the stencil with Wilted Violet Distress ink, keeping the color the darkest at the top.

Once the ink was dry I spattered the card with white acrylic paint.  Using licorice cardstock I die cut the Happy Birthday and glued it to the prepared card front.  Adhere the card front to a licorice cardstock layer and use foam tape to glue this to a white card base.  To finish the card I embellished the front with some sequins and used a silver pen to color the stars on the die cut.

I hope you enjoyed todays card!
