And now for more smooshing...

Hello crafty peeps, I'm back to share a card I made using one of the 6 smooshed backgrounds I made a couple weeks back. This one is by far my favorite, as the colors I used are so bright and vibrant. (My complete supplies list is always at the bottom of my posts.)

 Here's the inside:

The Happy Birthday die is new to me. I just got it in the mail the other day, and instead of just storing it, I actually used it. I die cut it 3 times, stacked and glued them together before adhering onto the panel. I wanted the smooshed background to be the main element, so I added clear sequins so as not to detract from it. On the inside, after stamping the sentiment, I added some stamped splats using the same colors on the front.

That's it for me. Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day!
