Amazing Birthday

Hi!  This is my take on a 30 minute card which ended up taking an hour to complete.

I had a need for a birthday card for a family member in her 20's and wanted something with graphic and fun colors and design.
I decided to play with some color shines as their color is a little more metallic and not as striking in color depth.  I used the three colors to spritz and add a hint of color to the background.

I came back and stamped some splatter, the frame, stars, and word using Darkroom Door stamps and a variety of inks.

I then used some leftover stars to add a pop of fun and created a few banners to go with the pretty sentiment.

I finished with a touch of embossing pasted for texture and a few glittery confetti that I glued randomly to the surface.

Well here is my 30 minute card that took an hour. :) Have a wonderful Thursday!
