happy birthday!

Hey friends!!   Hope your week is off to a good start.  We are still having our crazy rainy weather here in my little corner of Western Washington (Tacoma to be exact.).   It seems our summer has ended rather abruptly, but that is the way it can happen around here, lol!   Anyway... I have a card to share of a new stamp company that I recently discovered when I was on Splitcoaststampers.   The company is Concord & 9th and I just fell in love with their products and just had to add some to my collection.  The products I'm using today are their Eat Cake & Celebrate stamp set and the matching dies.  I used my Mr. Huey spray mists on this card (and I will explain how) so I'm posting it to the current Less is More challenge.   The card is very loosely based on the current CAS(E) this Sketch  layout.   I die cut some white cardstock using one of the dies from the A Jillian Vance Design Polka Dot Backdrop die set and then stamped it with the cake image from Eat Cake & Celebrate set.  I then sprayed some of my Mr. Huey mists in Bookworm (green) and Passport (blue) onto some paper plates, added water and splattered it on the stamped piece.  I added the little stars image using inks that corresponded rather nicely with the Mr. Huey spray mists and then adhered the panel.  I hope how I used my mists is okay with the LIM gals.  I tried using the sprays in the traditional manner, but I just too "heavy handed" when it comes to spraying and everything just ends up a mess!  The happy birthday was die cut,  stamped with the corresponding image and then adhered to the card. 

Thanks for stopping by today...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections white; Stamps: Concord & 9th; Dies:  Concord & 9th, A Jillian Vance Design; Spray Mists:  Mr. Hueys; Inks:  Stampin Up! Kiwi Kiss, Night of Navy, Memento Tuxedo Black

What a fabulously coordinated and neat card despite the splatters ... they've almost landed exactly to a pattern! Great colour choice and a super CAS card.
Thanks for playing along.

Your spraying is at the right touch together with the stars on the bg, Rosemary!

It seems like your weather is almost the same over here as it has been rainy but at the same time humid too.
