Addicted to CAS ~ Challenge # 194

Hi Friends! It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS. For the next two weeks, our challenge is 

I often seem to be looking for birthday cards, so I'm glad to see this code word! Here's my card

For my card, I used Stampin' Up's Just Believe stamp set. I used one of my favorite techniques for this card. I used my MISTI and inked up specific areas of the stamp with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers (Bright Yellow, Light Carmine, May Green) and spritzed lightly with water before stamping onto 96 lb bristol. I feel this technique gives the illusion of watercoloring without using a brush. I trimmed the panel down and matted with black. For the sentiment, I used Paper Smooches' Salutations stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

We'd love to see your "birthday" inspired cards. Please remember to keep them clean and simple!
