A Happy Birthday Card

Hi Everyone
I just got home from a busy Sunday at work and before I sit down and have a lovely roast lamb dinner I thought I would just make a quick post to share a birthday card I made recently for my niece who turned 11.

I have used a Unity Stamp set for my main image and sentiment which was stamped directly onto my background and coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils which virtually blocks out the background colours.
My background has been created by die cutting numbers from various colours of Bleeding Tissue and then allowing then to bleed onto my card. This leaves a lovely blended finish.
Right off to tuck into my delicious lamb.
