What a Happy Day!

Glad to be taking a break from making Christmas cards today and playing along with the Happy Birthday challenge at Splitcoast.  This was a quick and easy card made by 'splatting' my Distress stain onto my card front.  The Distress stain comes with a dabber end.  Get it saturated then hit the paper with the dabber...instant ink splatters.  I added some contrast by stamping around the splatters using an old stamp set from Cornish Heritage Farms.  The splatters leave some raised areas on the panel which gives it a very cool texture.  
I am also adding my card to the Seize the Birthday (texture) Challenge.  Sure you have a happy day, after all it is Friday!
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps; Avery Elle, Cornish Heritage Farms/ Distress stain/ bl Memento/ pop dots

My two newbie teenage Grandsons would love this card. Will have to give it a go.
