Happy Birthday

Hey there friends!! I am happy to be back sharing with you today!! Everyone in my house if FINALLY feeling better...a few lingering coughs, but I don't think they will ever go away!! So, I am feeling happy and can't hide it!!
I am sharing my new crush...this cute image from the Buff set!! This is the freebie set this month when you order 40$ or more from TAWS! He is so fun!! I also used Yappy to create that perfect sentiment for this card!!
I used a technique I've never done on this card!! I inked up the background stamp, Line upon Line, with versamark and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I inked the paper up with distress inks. THEN I took my paper and ironed it!! I put a piece of scrap paper under and on top of it and ironed on the no steam "cotton" setting of my iron. It takes all the embossing powder off--and leave a great feel!! I loved it!! Then I sprinkled a light bit of water and got a few spots.
I put my vellum down, then added my sentiment--versafine and clear embossing powder unite! My "little fella" is raised with dimensional adhesive.
It felt good to get back to my desk and create....see you around because I've got a lot to share!!
Take care!
