Sunny Big Word - Birthday Card

I'm sharing a birthday card that reminds me of sunshine and flowers on the LDRS Creative YouTube Channel! It's an easy card to make and completely color customizable to fit anyone's personality! 
Today is a difficult day for me - it's my Gramma's first birthday since she's been gone. She was such a special woman, and always so supportive of me. I thought I'd make a birthday card to honor her. She loved gardening and was the type of person who radiated joy and happiness. I started by die cutting the large sentiment from the Big Word - Birthday Dies from gray cardstock. I wanted to bring a hint of flowers into the card, so I used Alloy Hybrid Ink and stamped the images from the Hand-Tied Bouquet 4x6 Stamps all over the large word die-cut. 
Now it's time to create my sunny background. I used an LDRS Creative Blender Brush and blended In Your Face Orange Hybrid Ink onto the bottom of a piece of white cardstock and Dan-D-Lion Hybrid Ink onto the top being sure to blend well where the two colors overlapped. I stamped the Old Brick Wall 6x6 Stamp with Alloy Hybrid Ink onto the ink blended background to add some extra texture into the background. You know it's not me if I don't add some ink spatters! I used my shimmer black watercolor and spattered my background for some shimmery shine.
I added the background onto a black card base and mounted my sentiments with foam tape. That's it! I hope this card brings the same sun-shiney happiness to your day that my Gramma always brought to me. See you soon!
