Happy Birthday Emma!

My neighbors' daughters' birthday is pretty soon so I made a card for her.  She likes things pink and shiny, and I liked this weeks sketch for CAS(E) this Sketch, so here is what I came up with.  

I did my VersaMark Reveal technique, yet again, for the happy banner and the dots.  I used PTI's Background Basics: Random stripes and stamped with VersaMark on watercolor paper then set it with my heat tool.  Then, I painted on some distress inks that I had spritzed with water.  Once dry, I used a PTI dies to cut the HAPPY banner and the dotsAfter layering the Happy banner over the stamped & embossed vellum, I attached everything and gave all my die cuts 2 thick coats of Glossy Accents.  As usual, I don't think my pictures do justice to either the pinkness or the shininess of my card. 

Thanks so much for Looking!
