Here’s how I did it:

The card base is Thick Whisper White card stock.

The next layer is a piece of Irresistibly Floral Designer Series Paper that I colored with Stampin’ Write Markers in Soft Sky, Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay, Tempting Turquoise, Marina Mist, and Night of Navy.

(You could also use sponges or sponge daubers to color the paper, but I liked the effect I got by swiping the markers back and forth across the paper.)

The Stylized Birthday sentiment¬†is stamped in Island Indigo ink onto regular Whisper White card stock, then cut with a die from the Lots of Labels Framelits. I adhered this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
