Time for a Birthday

Hi all.  I made this card using a Sheena Douglass Embossing Folder called Trailing Time.  It was a snippet of white card I embossed when making this card here, and I put it aside and when sorting through some things I found it, so I thought it would be good to use it on this card. 

I decided to ink up the piece and used some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink applied with a brush, and I then  used a darker blue fine liner pen from a set by Docraft to colour the stamens of the flowers, and I then added this snippet of similarly coloured blue card and added it to a 5" x 7" card, and finished with a die cut sentiment using another snippet of the same card.

Thank you for joining me here today and I'll see you again soon.
