Happy birthday (pretty) card!

Hi everyone! here is another one of my card creations! this is probably one of my favorite ones i have ever made! i love the look of green purple and black together!the card is a standard 5.5 by 4.25 card. i used a corner punch on the purple back piece. the grren paper was punched using threading water punch and then i ran it through the cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder. i took a sponge and some dark green ink to ink up the bottom of the paper. i used a scallop square cut from the mini monograms cricut cartridge. the present was stamped on white cardstock with stazon ink. i then used the watercolor wonder crayons from stampinup and my watercolor pen to color the stamp. (note... you should use stazon ink when watercoloring, otherwise the image will bleed.) i popped up the image with popups. the happy birthday is stamped on green cardstock,( i again inked the edge with green ink and a sponge). the box is cut using fabulous finds cartridge and my designer software to get the image the size i wanted it, and then shadowed with black card stock. i used mini purple brads to add some interest! hope you like it!
