Birthday Splash

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! 

This time around the "Toppings" options is "Water". However, you can also chose to do an Anything Goes birthday card, the choice is yours!

Hmmm... water. I have a few sailboat sets, and a girl on a pool float, but used them both recently and wanted to give some love to something I hadn't used in a while. I thought this set fit the ticket perfectly, and I created a watery, rainy background by sponging and adding a few raindrops. My sentiment was created using three different sets, but I think it works!

Stamp Sets: April Showers, April Showers Additions (Clearly Besotted), Best Birds (Stampin' Up), Beautiful Lady (Altenew)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Soft Pool, Cornflower, Bubble Gum, Orchid (Hero Arts), Tumbled Glass Distress Ink (Ranger)
Tools: Big Shot, April Showers Die (Clearly Besotted), Stitched Rectangle Dies (Simon Says Stamp)

I'm so glad you paid me a visit today! If you have a moment please leave a comment, then visit the rest of the wonderful Design Team at Seize the Birthday. We'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs :)

Love your umbrellas and your rain splashes! You know, it is raining someplace in the world so this is very appropriate and clever with that sentiment!

Love your splendiferous umbrellas! I wish I had thought of that.

The sentiment uses three different sets??!! Absolutely couldn't tell that! It looks like a single stamp to me! But it sure is the perfect sentiment to go with you card's theme - rain and umbrellas was something that I just didn't think of! And you've made a fantastic card too! Yay!
