Sweet Birthday

Back again with another card using the Sweet Sunday Sketch 157 and the colours of the Hero Arts May challenge - Pool, Green, Yellow, Orange and Chocolate. I also wanted to try using sentiments as a background for the current Topsy Turvy challenge for A Blog Named Hero.

I kept the background plain as I wanted the main stamping to be the hero of the card. I white embossed a series of sentiments and then overstamped with all the colours of the the HA May challenge. I initially tried to do velveteen stamping, but the effect was not as good. At the end I was quite happy with the result! It is so good to challenge myself and go out of my comfort zone!!
