Happy Birthday!

 Happy Saturday!  I have a birthday card to share today. I am playing along in a few blog challenges.


I have another Yupo Paper and Alcohol Inks card to share.  I love this one.  I wanted to embrace more white space for this card.  This is a bit of a challenge as it is so easy to move the alcohol inks everywhere and all over.    

I used Alcohol Lift ink to stamped the MFT Happy Birthday cling background stamp.  I love how the alcohol lift ink removed the ink.  I stamped it a few times to achieve this look using the MISTI.  I used a retired MFT " happy" word die using the silver Tim Holtz's Ideology Metallic Kraft paper pad. 

I stamped the sentiment from PTI Never Enough: Birthdays stamp set using versamark ink on to blue card stock from SSS card kit and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I die cut using the fishtail sentiment strip from Wine Bottle Tag #2I added this yupo panel using foam tape to a top folding card base that matches the sentiment. I finished the card with a few clear sequins

Here is a list of many of my favorite products that I generally use every time I make a card.
