Inlaid Birthday

It's Sunday night here and I finally had a chance to sit down and just create!  It's been a hectic few weeks with packing up the house and de-cluttering some of our accumulated schtuff.  I really didn't have the energy to make a card, but I went into my bare craft room and made this card for the ColourQ challenge:

I signed up for the latest Online Card Class (which was fantastic!) but didn't have time to put into practice anything I learned.  I was seeing my fellow FMS team-mates making gorgeous cards with the things we learned on the course and I really wanted to play along! 

Anyway, this card uses the inlaid die-cut technique and be warned - this is my first attempt so it's not perfect.  I'm a bit limited in my word dies but I just got the speech bubble dies and thought they would work well.  NB:  This card is in no way unique as I've seen the speech bubbles and overlaid words but it wasn't openly CASE'd off any card.  I painted the "birthday" with Wink of Stella pen to give it a lovely shimmer.

Naturally, when I wanted to use Apricot Appeal and Going Gray, I find I've already packed them away, so I had to use Crisp Cantaloupe and Smoky Slate instead.

Thanks for looking.
