Birthday Wishes

How about a clean and simple card today?


The card base is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and made of white card stock.


The black background is 4 1/8"x2 7/8."  I used one of the Border Dies from Jaded Blossom to cut the scallop at the bottom.  I cut a white rectangle at 2"x4" and then used six different Distress Inks to create the ombre effect in the background.  I used: squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, dried marigold, carved pumpkin, candied apple, & fired brick.


The dog silhouette is a stamp from Paper Smooches.  It is from the Paws for a Cause stamp set.  I heat embossed it on the white rectangle before I created the ombre background.


The sentiment is also from Jaded Blossom.  It is from the Dog-Gone Awesome stamp set.

I made this for the following challenges:
Less Is More: three adjacent color wheel colors
Pile It On: fire or red/orange color scheme
Crazy 4 Challenges: use an animal
CASology: youth
Cardz TV: anything goes
