A Grungy Birthday (take 2)

Yesterday I posted this card.  I knew when I posted it
that I would be re-doing it. Let's just say it's not one of
my favorites. I had an idea of how I would change it and while
I was out of town all day I had a couple of more ideas. As 
soon as I got home I headed to my craft room make it again.

I am much happier with how this card turned out.  I used crumb cake 
for the card base instead of soft suede. I used one less image and 
3 of the in-colors - not all 5.  I used the same greeting but
added a smaller embossed one with the vellum layer. I didn't
add any sequins to this card - I like sequins but I think they
compete with the splatters.

I posted the original on StampNation and asked the members
what would they change on the card. After I made this one, I went
back and read their comments - there were some fantastic 
suggestions and ones that I had even done!

StampNation is a fantastic community of encouragement,
support and inspiration. Everyone is helpful  and eager to see each 
other grow as paper crafters.
Come and check it out.
