Birthday Wishes

 I needed a Birthday card for Tuesday and I've been on a roll with Ink Blending since Shopping Our Stash has a Blending Challenge going on and I was quite impressed with Lauren's offering for the challenge, she dry embossed her inky layer so I had to give it a go. Now since I was planning on using an embossing folder I checked out the almost new challenge "Let's Squash it" it is CAS so what you see next is MY idea of CAS. 

I used a Cuttlebug asian (cherry blossom) folder on my blended background added some wild flowers and a simple Happy Birthday which is two heavy weight cardstock pieces clued together for a tiny bit of dimension.

A closer look at the embossing.

Since I didn't have any scrap left from the front piece I blended the inks as a base for a third wild flower, and one of my favourite sentiment. 

I am adding this to.

Let's Squash it Challenge ~~ #22 Keep it CAS (as cas as I can manage)

Seize The Birthday ~~ Anything Goes #242

Thanks for visiting today and check out those two challenges..
