Bloggers Challenge- Happy Birthday and FCD Blowout sale

Our Bloggers Challenge this week is a Happy Birthday card.  Perfect to break up the Christmas Card making and a fun way to try something new.  I made a tag-#3 in the series of Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas that he is posting on his blog.  I used a variety of alcohol inks, and just dragged them on the felt applicator across Glossy White CS, first up and down, then side to side.  I made about 10 of the backgrounds in different colors- and here is the one I settled on to stamp on for my bloggers challenge project.
When I made the tags, I decided I was going to make all of them into cards and use them..... Stamps are Stampers Anonymous and the CS and ribbon is SU Rich Razzleberry .
Thanks for looking, and please click on the Bloggers Challenge icon on my side bar to see all of the wonderful Birthday card ideas the other bloggers have created!
