Distressed Birthday Card

     I have something a little different to share with you today.
     I made this distressed birthday card using Graphic 45 and distress inks. This is very different from what I typically create but I had a lot of fun with this and I think it turned out well. Besides trying something new a getting a little dirty is always fun!
     It's a little hard to see in the photo but the sentiment is from My Creative Time's Wow! So Many Candles stamp set and says "so sorry these birthday wishes are a little late". I thought the sentiment went well with the Scarecrow - he is looking of a brain after all!
     One fun technique I used was to color my sheer ribbon with distress ink. I just wet the ribbon a little bit and ran the ink pad over the ribbon.
