Embossed Birthday

I am always in need of birthday cards and even more now that I haved joined a FB Birthday Club.
So, when I feel like creating it usually ends up birthday or thank you. I decided to combine a couple challenges today. Papertake Weekly Challenge is a new one to me. It was the last week of September so we could take our pick of the themes and I went with the technique theme of embossing and product theme with Distress Ink, I LOVE them ALL, seriously!! I always have trouble choosing colors!

So, here is my card:
I embossed my background with clear embossing powder after stamping with versamark ink and The Grid BG stamp by MFT. I then, just played around with some Distress Ink and water. Peacock Feathers, Milled lavendar and the NEW Wild Violet, love them together! I did not have a dark purple cardstock that I thought matched well so I swiped("No swiping Swiper"-swiping allowed!) the Wild Violet ink across my Papertrey Ink Lavendar Moon CS and then die cut my Happy Birthday(Impression Obsession die) out. Stuck her on with Tombow Mono and shimmered it up with Wink of Stella! Added the heart at the last minute and gave it a coat of Wof S also. Love the final product and actually I did two.
 Here they are together :

I am also entering this into the Virginia's View Challenge # 19

  1. I love your colours, so my sort of shades. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards.

  2. Loving how you've done your background. The colours are gorgeous and it really makes the sentiment pop out x Thanks for stopping by my blog x The circle stmap you where asking about is from Katzelkraft...from France. I ordered directly from the company in France, hope this helps? x
    The stamp is in a set with an oval one and a square one and are really useful.

  3. That grid background looks lovely with the colors you chose, Jennifer! Thanks for joining us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  5. Gorgeous colours! I love the effect of the grid pattern with the watercolours! Thanks so much for playing along with us at AA Cards! Jill

  6. These colours go perfectly together and purple/tealy are one of my fave combos. I have never heard of a Birthday Club - had to go look it up - and WOW. I've always cursed for FB for the demise of real birthday cards, (now people just go 'Happy Birthday' on your wall) but this is a cool idea!! Thanks so much for joining us at AAA Cards!
