Sponged Birthday

Hi there! Last night I had some fun in the craft room. I was so inspired by Kamila's video tutorial for Happy Little Stampers that I wanted to try my hand at sponging with Distress Inks. Plus Time Out has a great challenge on right now so that also gave me the nudge I needed :)

Here is my card -

This was created using Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade and Festive Berries. I embossed the sentiment from the HLS Everyday Sentiments set and the stars from the HLS Bold Birthday Sentiments set.

I splattered a bit of water over the panel right at the end.

This card is nice and flat - perfect for mailing. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Time OutBirthdays with the optional Technique Twist of adding sponging
