A Rainbow Birthday Card

The weekend is already over :( Weekends should be 3 days. Anywho... Here's a little birthday card I made with some Hero Arts & Cricut magic.

I used paint daubers for the ink instead of traditional ink pads which gave it a really nice texture.

With cricut, I cut out the scallop and distressed with a little dusty concord. Cut out the remaining images, and assembled the card :)
