Happy Birthday to you

I want to share the card I made for Embellish Magazine's birthday color challenge.



I thought the colors would be fun to work with so I gave it a try!



I used Background Basics: Petal Power, which I can't seem to put down, and stamped over the four colors of cardstock in Versamark ink and then heat embossed with clear detail ep. I stamped the happy birthday sentiment in Raspberry Fizz ink (it's hard to see in the photo).

Thanks for taking a look!
Melissa

Paper: Enchanted Evening, Raspberry Fizz, Dark Chocolate and New Leaf
