Happy Little Stampers March Challenge

It's time for Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies March challenge:

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.

I used some alcohol ink backgrounds that I had made awhile ago for my card.
I used the darker blue with Taylored Expressions Falling Rain cutting plate. Then I cut it out with Tutti Designs dotted nesting squares,and made a thin frame.

The Birthday die is from Lil Inker. I adhered it to a lighter piece of blue alcohol ink paper, and then adhered that on top of the rain piece. I popped it up and added the sentiment from Simon Says, which was also cut out in alcohol ink paper.

I hope you will join us!

You're blowing me away with the alcohol inks! How perfect this is for the rainy background (which is so cute). This is the birthday card we need here with all the rain we're having. Lately a sunny day is sneaking in now and then, so spring must be close. Love the big, chunky birthday die on this. So much easier to work with than little fiddly things.

I always avoid using blue on my cards because there are so many variations but your card is perfect with the mix of blues. This card can easily be for a boy or girl; good planning!

Such a stunning card, Laurie. I adore the alcohol ink backgrounds, especially how you have die cut the rain drops from one and used the other for the base of the Happy Birthday die - genius! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

This is absolutely gorgeous Laurie! I love the depth and variations in your inky backgrounds and the die cut panels are such striking features too. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.

I love the vibrant colour you got with your alcohol ink backgrounds Laurie. Combining all that colour with some fun dies (raindrops!) makes for a really striking card! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
