Happy Birthday Card for Kayla

Hello everyone! I am happy to show you a card I slapped together! HAHA! Yes, slapped together- made this card in 15 minutes while rushing out the door on Friday evening! I had some stamped images on hand, some embossed cardstock from a swap, so I quickly decided what I'd like to do. The birthday card was for a 17 year old girl. Hard to decide what to do, when they are that age! HAHA! So, I decided a Tilda stamp was appropriate, with the Happy Birthday embossed cardstock. I took some Distress ink over the cardstock (Tim Holtz Broken China). I colored the Tilda image with prismacolor pencils using the gamsol technique. I raised the image using pop dots, tied light blue grosgrain ribbon, added a swirl clip, and tada! I hope you like it! I impressed myself by getting this done that quickly, and was still happy with the outcome!

I love comments! Please let me know what you think!
