Happy birthday, Merry!

Here is a blue and cream card I made for a friend's birthday.  Hope it will bring her smiles:
I rounded the corners on a cream card base and then cut a slightly smaller PTI spring rain panel. I stamped large flourishes on the spring rain panel with Brilliance pearlescent blue ink that has a shimmer to it.
I used my Take Three die to cut out three squares and stamped PTI's Background Basics Geometric graph paper design in Jenni Bowlin soap powder ink.  I stamped more flourishes in spice tin ink (dark navy) and then the Mega Mixed Messages sentiment in brown sugar.  I popped up the spring rain layer on foam dots and voil√†, all done!

Hope you have wonderful birthday, Merry.  Sending you hugs.

Paper: Staples 110lb cream, PTI spring rain
Stamps: PTI's Fancy Flourishes, Background Basics Geometrics, Mega Mixed Messages
Ink: Brilliance Pearlescent Blue; Jenni Bowlin inks (soap powder, spice tin, brown sugar)
Misc: PTI Take Three die, foam dots, corner rounder punch
