Happy Birthday Card



The background of this card is done with some of the new colors of Ranger Alcohol Inks. I can't tell you which ones because I spent a couple of hours just playing with all the new colors and made lots of backgrounds. I can tell you that they are all fantastic... I love how bright the brights are and how you get wonderful color with the lights, they're just lighter... but not washed out... gorgeous, gorgeous. The cupcake and Happy Birthday stamps are 2 of the newest stamps available from Quietfire Design. The cupcake image was cut out using a spellbinders die and gold Krylon sponged on the edges. The next oval is also cut with a Spellbinders die and then embossed with a cuttlebug folder and again gold Krylon sponged on the high spots. Some pink rickrack and a pink sheer ribbon bow finished off the card nicely.
