Happy Birthday Lauren

It's my lovely pal Lauren's Birthday today and I'd like to send her happy wishes and hope she is being thoroughly spoiled with lots of lovely gifts and loads of CAKE ! In my book every birthday should have CAKE, Happy Birthday Lauren..... mwah mwah Daaahlink x

Hopefully Lauren will have already opened the card I sent to her so adding it on here won't spoil the surprise !

I created the background using Distress Inks brushed on with my Inkyliscious brushes, before stamping the Indigo Blu number stamp using the same DI over the top.  I applied some random spots over using a silver pearl pen.

After matting the background layer over a couple of layers of dark blue and white, I added a narrow strip of the dark blue cardstock across the centre then attached the sentiment 'focal point' in the centre. 

I must apologise but I can't recall the manufacturer of the sentiment stamp I used as this is one of the cards I made a while ago whilst I was still quite ill but wanted to get back to a little light crafting.  I'll try to find out if I can and will update this post later.  

After stamping the sentiment I inked up around the edges of the layer with the DIs, finally spraying Goosebumps over the top (which unfortunately is showing up as grey on the pic) to seal the inks and add a little texture.

That's it from me today, a simple design but it's in Lauren's favourite colour so I hope she liked it.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a great day.
