sentiments only, please

It's rare that i make a sentiment only front to my card.  It looks a bit bare to me but I am going to roll with it.  Inside i computer generated a sentence that says It's your birthday, Make a splash. 

I surely do love the Peacock Feathers distress ink from Tim Holtz.  It's my all time favorite of his colors.   The Simon Wednesday Challenge this week is Ombre.  It's trickier than it seems to get that distress ink to move on plain card stock without having round blobs of color.  It's a technique i need to practice with.   My Favorite Things has a simple sketch challenge this week that sparked this card.


  1. Gorgeous card Janeen, the background looks fabulous, I love the ombre water spritzed effect! Simple and stunning! :-)

  2. This is cool. That splat embellishment is perfect for this card. That variegated splotched background keeps it from being dull, but I know what you mean about the feeling of sentiment only card fronts!

  3. Gorgeous gorgeous ombre colourwashed on the background. Love your card. Thanks for playing along Simon Says Stamp Ombre Challenge!
