more birthday cards?

Yes, its one more birthday card! :) I wanted to create something sort of beach/shabby/tropical. Very summery. The background was stamped with Polka Dot Basics. The patterned paper is from Fancy Pants. The chipboard frame was painted white, distressed with ink, and then a wood grain was stamped once the paint dried. Its a pretty subtle wood grain, so I think next time I will use an even darker shade of ink.
I am not certain of how much I will be posting in the next week or so. I always say that and end up posting, but with CHA deadlines staring me in the face, things are a bit busy. It is so much fun and such an honor to be creating, but it gets a bit nerve wracking. :) There are several things coming up quickly, but I can't share just yet. But, I promise that I will get back soon with some tutorials. I have one idea that is new and cool and I am having a hard time holding it back! :)
thanks, as always, for stopping by!!
