Cheerful "Happy Birthday" mixed media card

Hello Crafty Friends!

Don't you just love it when you start playing with crafty supplies and the next thing you know you are finishing up a project you never planned on making?  That happened when I was playing in my craft room with Wendy Vecchi's Stamp it- Stencil it Bouquet set.  The crafty time started with a stamp/stencil set and ended up with a cheerful birthday card.
The image was stamped on watercolor paper in Jet Black Archival Ink and colored using Tim Holtz' Distress Markers.  Clear gloss gel was dyed using Festive Berries Distress Reinker and applied to the stencil.  After drying, Elizabeth Craft Designs' Prills were glued to the flower centers.
Quietfire Designs' Happy Birthday was stamped onto more watercolor paper, cut to size and mounted on red corrugated board.
Authentique's Cheerful papers were die cut using Memory Box's Stitched Rectangles dies to create a happy frame and background.  
The card is so cheerful with the bright, summery colors and different textures.  Fun to make, easy to reproduce and to mail!  Yay!

Thanks for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed the cheerful birthday card.
Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo
