Happy Birthday

A card with Brusho's from my play day yesterday
The background is a couple of different colours of Brusho's, smooshed around.
I usually wet the card and pop the Brusho's on or Brusho's first then spray with water
but I tried smooshing with them this time on a craft mat.

I have used the HLS Fun Birthday sentiments and Mix Mash stamp sets.
You can never have enough sentiment stamps.
The stamps are all separate, so I popped some of them onto an acrylic block 
and stamped in Dark blue ink.
I then swapped them across and re-stamped in Brown ink.
The circles have been stamped with inks and the white ones heat embossed.
Finished off with sequins. I have only recently started to use sequins and I am loving them!
Such a huge selection of colours and suitable for a boys/mans card too, which surprised me.

I've kept the card to one layer, left open space and used minimal embellishments....CAS
I've CASE'd the designer card as the water colour background against the bold sentiment inspired me.
