Birthday Wishes

Well my little chargers (grand daughters) have gone home today after a sleepover, and I found a few quiet moments to complete this card, using bits from my stash.  I created my background for this weeks Simon Says Wednesday challenge, with a stencil and masking areas and sponging wet colour using Distress Inks, - then I ran it through the Cuttlebug with my dotty border die and back the area with mauve coloured card - which I think has created a sort of Polka Dot effect for the City Crafters current challenge Week 400.
My layout is loosely following the Freshly Made Sketches #325 - in reverse, replacing the star with my die cut flower and the round sentiment with my rectangle.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day
