Here's a quick birthday card I made using Cas-ual Fridays Rad stamp set, Stampers Anonymous Bitty Grunge set and Impression Obsession Circle Swirls Cover-a-Card stamp. I stamped the sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To create the sunburst, I inked the Bitty Grunge stamp with Memento Tangelo ink and then Lady Bug ink around the edges. Sparkle was added using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen. The swirl background was stamped using Tangelo ink.

I made this card for my Dad's birthday. While collecting links for the stamps used, I discovered the theme of this week's Cas-ual Fridays Challenge: Birthday Bash. CFC99 is all about creating a CAS birthday card. You have until May 1st to play along. Check it out. The design team has created some incredible inspiration for this challenge.

Thanks for visiting. I hope your day is AWESOME!
