Have a COOL birthday!!

Hello my crafty friends!!

I have a friend who simply loves ice-creams.Her birthday is in next week so I planned to make a cute birthday card for her.I have used Your next stamp "Happy Brrthday" stamp set.The waddle holding the ice-cream was just apt and I also had a coordinating sentiment in the same stamp set.Sharing my card below

For the base,I have done marble technique using green and white acrylic colors,adding water to the card stock and then making the design with a toothpick.Once that all semi dried,I have splattered some gold spray and again used toothpick to create a pattern.I left it aside for complete drying and once that was done,I attached it to main card base.My inspiration of doing this marble trick came from a picture posted by UNIKO for their photo inspiration challenge.I was quite impressed by the design on the suitcase and tried replicating it in my trick. along with birthday twist.

Here's the pic which inspired me to make this marbled background.

Next I tried adding more elements to my card,I used Your next stamp "Cool backgrounds" stamp set and lavender archival ink to create a pattern on a card stock of size 2*4.5 inches.Then I cut it into half horizontally and attached it as per the sketch challenge posted by Your next stamp.Here's the picture of the sketch

Lastly I attached the waddle with double sided foam and stamped the sentiment on the marbled background with Black archival ink.I have added some enamel dots on the top as well.

I am entering my card to following challenges:
