Birthday Girl

I made this card for my niece, Caitlin's, birthday. 
I used the emboss resist technique with the Hero Arts Highline Ironwork background stamp, coloured with Zig markers and water. I then cut out the word birthday with a die from Papertrey Ink to create the word in the negative space. ( I kept the positive space word for another card - coming soon!) I stamped the word "girl" onto grey cardstock with Concord & 9th Perfectly Penned, and fussy cut around the word. I finished with some Wink of Stella in the negative space, and a scattering of sequins.
 I'm joining in with the Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp - the theme is Anything Goes.

I'll also be sharing this card at Happy Little Stampers Watercolour challenge - Anything Goes with an optional twist of Rainbow.

Thanks for visiting :)
