Birthday Wishes

Morning Friends.
Happy Memorial Weekend to all my American friends.

I am so happy to have some time to stamp today.  My time has been so limited lately.
This is a simple, one-layer card with a stenciled background.

 I began by placing the stencil from The Crafter's Workshop and laid it onto my cardstock.  Using an applicator tool, I rubbed Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans Distress ink over my stencil being sure 
to vary the colour on each of the circles.
Next, I placed my card inside my MISTI and stamped the flowers from Unity with black Memento ink.  
Next using more Memento ink, I stamped the sentiment from a new set by Penny Black called  

Adding my card to these challenges:

Little Red Wagon- ROUND and ROUND

Seize the Birthday- ANYTHING GOES

Thanks so very much for coming by and taking a look.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Supplies:  stamps- Unity, Penny Black/ ink- Distress, Memento/ applicator tool/ stencil/ MISTI
