Happy Birthday

Having Birthday cards readily on hand is always a bonus.  When I saw the FUN new challenge and celebration over at Time Out Challenge Blog celebrating their 8th Birthday, I knew right away that I wanted to play along.  I got busy right away creating something FUN for their challenge and a few other fun challenges where I enjoy playing along when I'm able.
I used some cardstocks and some white watercolor paper.  I cut the two white mat using a fun die-cut set from The Greetery called Crimped Frames Dies.  I did some Tim Holtz Oxide Ink watercoloring on the papers before stamping them with a fun Typewriter Text Background Stamp from SNSS.  I used the Delightfully Delicate Stencil which is also from SNSS, and the stamped sentiment is from Verve.
I also added some snippets of burlap for texture, and a small JilliBean Soup heart topped with a small pearl.  I know it looks like there's a lot going on here, but it really is quite a simple card.  I love the fun background stamps that fill in all that blank space.  I look forward to making a few more cards for all the fun challenges this week.  I hope you're having fun crafting too.

Here's where I'm playing along:
