Happy Birthday Sparkle

I needed to make a quick birthday card and this time used only dies rather than stamps to make my card.


Hero Arts die - Triangle Background
Xcut die - Large Sentiments

I used a Triangle Background die cut (thanks again, Linda!) as a stencil, applied distress inks (spiced marmalade, worn lipstick, mowed lawn and peacock feathers) to white card and spritzed with water. Then I die cut a sentiment piece and embossed it with stardust embossing powder.


The sentiment was layered on another two die cuts and added to the card with foam pads. For the card base I used card from Hero Arts pool mixed layering paper pack. I'm submitting this card into Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge and A Blog Named Hero Die a Little Challenge.

I meant to send you some of that die on thin paper so you could use it as a stencil. but I only sent thicker pieces! So glad they worked to make this beauty, Heather! Love the colors and they look great with the sparky sentiment!!
