Frosted Designs- Happy Birthday

As those of you who have been following me for a while may know, there are a lot of birthdays and anniversaries in our family during the months of June and July. This weekend begins that rush. My sister's birthday is Saturday and I made this card today using the current card sketch at Frosted Designs.  

 
For the background, I used a mask and some spray ink to make a subtle pattern down the center.  I pulled out some stamps and embossing powder for the flower and sentiment.  I used some decorative tape (AKA washi tape) across the bottom.  When washi tape first came out as a new trend, I didn't get it, but as I use it more, I totally get it.  It is quick and easy to use, just stick it down and you are done. I also like that the stuff I have is a little transparent, letting any background patterns show through.

Materials:
Patterned Paper: The Robin's Nest, Die Cuts With a View
Spray Ink- Tattered Angels and Studio Calico
Stamps- Stampin' Up
Ink- Tsukeniko
Embossing Powder- JoAnn Crafts
Button- My Minds Eye
Tape- Target
