another card. . . .

for Virginia's View challenge:




 
 
 
 
here is my card:

I smooshed distress inks onto a craft sheet and spritzed them with water and then pulled white cardstock through for the background.  Two Memory Box dies and sequins created the focal image.  The Anna Griffin embossing folder is new to me and I love all of the pretty designs in it. 

A birthday greeting was stamped inside and this card was given to a friend this morning for her upcoming birthday.

Have a great evening!
