Happy Birthday

Another Birthday card, I need quite a few at the beginning of the year. This card was inspired by Seize the Birthday's Anything Goes with a topping of Clean and Simple challenge. I may have veered off the CAS road--thankfully there is also anything goes for the challenge.

I stamped and masked Hero Arts' Classic bloom, colored in several shades of yellow with copic markers, and added the sentiment a la Kelly Latevola style with a portion outlined in white to make it stand out against the flower petals.  My finishing touches were ombre sequins from A Muse and a thing black strip along the left edge. I mounted the front onto a yellow cardbase (stampin up).

Thanks for stopping by!
