Happy Birthday Hearts

So happy to be able to join in the Seven Hills Crafts Blog Challenge this month - the store has just re-opened with a brand new name.  If you're in the U.K. or Ireland and want to be able to order from a huge selection of some of the current trendy stamps, dies and supplies, this is the place for you!

The challenge is to use one of these colour palettes:

Using various Ranger Distress inks I sponged a background with some of my favourite shades from the middle palette.  I used Paper Smooches Linked Hearts, cutting and stacking four layers in white, then inserting the heart pieces with matching card stock - fun process, just like doing a jigsaw!
The happy birthday message is stamped in Versafine Black Onyx ink using Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler, and it's finished with some scattered sequins.

Had so much fun with this, I had to try another colour scheme as well!
I have another card to post in a day or two using this fun die with the inlay technique.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I really appreciate you 
popping in for a visit as you travel through blogland!
