Stenciled Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Taylored Expressions
Here's my card for the current challenge at Perfectly CAS.  This month's theme is stencils, so this was the perfect opportunity to showcase the fun Bokeh stencil from Taylored Expressions.

I masked off a section of a white card base, then went to work inking the three different stencils in three different coordinating colors of distress inks to get the bokeh look.  I topped the stenciled section of the card with a bold black "happy" die cut that was stamped and heat embossed in pink to go with the stenciling.  Used the On Repeat-Birthday stamp set and dies to create the tiny strip with the pink embossed word "birthday."  This was plced just beneath the bottom of the letter "Y" in "happy" to finish the card. This one would be a great one to mass produce in different color schemes...

Materials Used:
On the Block-Happy and On Repeat-Birthday stamp sets, On the Block-Happy Shadow and On Repeat dies, Bokeh stencil (Taylored Expressions); Versamark ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Abandoned Coral, Worn Lipstick, and Spun Sugar distress inks (Ranger); Basic Black cardstock (Stampin' Up!); foam tape
