How about a birthday card with a Valentine's theme?



I didn't get much opportunity this year to make Valentine's cards. So I thought I'd make a card with Valentine's colors for a birthday card. LOL. I stamped my image, watercolored with my Tombott markers then cut out (very hard to cut out!) Layered image on cream and pink cardstock. I used the same layers for the Happy Birthday except I distressed it. I added Stickles to cakes and had an "oops" and smeared the ink/stickles on the cream cardstock and so to cover it up I went ahead and spread it around. LOL I think it turned out okay even with the "oopsi" I used the SC140 sketch.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
Stamps: The Cat Pajamas
Inks: Tombott markers, Brilliance black, distress ink

That is a nice card. The Valentine theme works well for birthday. I didn't know there was a mistake. You did a good job covering it up:)
