Brush Stroke Birthday Card

Here is today's clean and simple creation:

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4."  I used a piece of wood patterned card stock as the card base.  It is from the Good Wood Stack by DCWV.  The white mat was cut using part of the Goody Bag Die by Jaded Blossom.



The brush strokes are stamped using one of the Paint Splatter stamps by Jaded Blossom.  I used inks from Tsukineko.  The colors are tangelo, dandelion, and bamboo leaves.  The sentiment is also by Jaded Blossom, from the Supersized Birthday Greetings set.

I made this for the following challenges:

Jaded Blossom: use something new (I just got, and have never used Supersized Birthday Greetings)
Color Throwdown: color combo
Crafty Creations Challenges: sentiment as focal point
Less is More: citrus colors
Pile it On: green and two other colors
Seize the Birthday: divide focal point into parts (three sets of brush strokes)
