MMSC95, CR84FN20, Shabby Birthday

There's a birthday bash going on at The Shabby Tea Room - one year since they've started their challenges.  So the theme is party time.  I made this birthday card following the Midnight Madness sketch and the pretty color trio from CR84FN of plum, lavender and green.   The main image I've had sitting around for months waiting to be used.  I had inked it with several colors of Colorbox Queues then stamped it.  Added several layers of UTEE, chilled and cracked it.  Stamped the sentiment then tore it around it, inked the edges.  Flowers I made from punches, sprayed them with home made glimmer spray.

What a Pretty card. I love the soft colors and the flowers are a great accent. The crackled Utee looks like a fun technique I will have to try it. Thanks for sharing with us at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week.
