Birthday Sundaes Challenge 5 - Anything Goes!

Over at Birthday Sundaes this week there is an Anything Goes challenge, where the only rule was to make sure you had a birthday sentiment on the front.  Who doesn't need an excuse to make up a supply of birthday cards! This is a fun site with lots of birthday card inspiration!

I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks and sponged them on a tag, then spritzed with Shimmer Spray and added a little water for effect.  I then stamped over the tag with a cool Mind's Eye chandelier stamp, border and saying, and added Happy Birthday with foam dots.  For the card base I stamped all over, alternating blue and red Distress Ink and then blended it with some Walnut Stain and added a little Shimmer Spray all over. For the finishing touch I added a white paper flower, which I sponged with blue distress ink and added a fabric covered brad.

Happy Easter everyone!
