Hi friends!  I'm sharing a simple, but sparkly birthday card today using the fun Shell Parade stencil and a sentiment from the Hook, Line & Sinker stamp set by Catherine.

I started my card by masking off the sides of my panel with purple tape and then ink blending Garden Party and Mardi Gras inks using my Life Changing Brushes.  When I was happy with the blend, I placed the Shell Parade stencil over top and spread some Glass Bead Glitter Gel over top.

I love the sparkle and texture!  I stamped and silver heat embossed the sentiment onto a strip of vellum card stock and adhered that to my panel and then adhered the panel to a card base.
