A birthday card

Just popping in today with a card that I made for my dil.

Maureen's birthday

supplies: white, mint, Audrey Blue, and sky blue cardstock, various shades of ink from mint to blue, Avery Elle Brushed stamp set, Winnie & Walter In a Word: Happy  and Audrey Cutaways dies, and text stamp from Big,Bold, and Happy stamp set, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins

After stamping my brushstrokes and splatters, I die-cut the Happy from that panel, plus 3 more plain white ones, glued them all together, and inserted them back into place.

Thanks for stopping by!
