happy birthday

I really should have more Happy Birthday cards in my stash... but then maybe it would remind me of how terrible I am about actually sending birthday cards?  Who knows.  Anyhoo, today's card was inspired by the latest Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger, I used the Hero Arts tweed background and inked a bunch of distress inks (loosely based on the colors in the photo) onto a block and then spritzed the block, blending the inks together.  Then you press the rubber stamp onto the block and get this fun background.  So I won the Fresh Squeezed Stamps Birthday giveaway last week, so all the more reason to make a birthday card with some of their stamps!  And for one last challenge I think this is a fun take on the MFW Handmade Cards Week Color Media Challenge.  It's so very colorful in my world right now... inspiration is everywhere.
