Blogger's Challenge-Happy Birthday

Here's my entry for this week's Blogger's's a bright Birthday Card. I used purple cardstock which I slightly distress and then created this stain window effect. I did that by die cutting the design (Cheery Lynn Design) on printed light purple paper. Then I used a piece of acetate which I first lightly and randomly colored with purple Staz-On. I glued it down to the die-cut and colored the back side of the acetate with Copic markers. I then backed the whole stained glass image with white paper to really make the colors pop. I like how the purple Staz-On (rubbed on the opposite side of the Copic coloring)  gives it more of a mottle effect.
I attached the stained glas image, ran a bit of paper tape along the bottom edge of it, and added a white die cut here. Then I die cut the word on black paper and the flower on white paper. These dies are all from Sizzix. I used Versa Mark on the top of the flower and then embossed the flower with stream Adirondack embossing powder and then I repeated on the stem and leaves and embossed them in BING leaf embossing powder. Then I added  the last little edge of the flower, a few blue Viva Paint Pen dots, and put a few of these dots along the white triangular trim.
That's my card. Thanks for stopping by to get a closer look.
