Clearly Sentimental About Birthdays - My Favorite Things Teaser, Day One

[If you're looking for my Crazy 4 Challenges card, please scroll down to the next post. Thanks!]

Let the sneaks begin! Are you ready for a look at the April releases? I thought so ;-) My card for you today is using Clearly Sentimental About Birthdays. You may remember it was last month's Triple Scoop set. As I may have mentioned before, I love sentiments that can act as focal images and this Clearly Sentimental line at My Favorite Things is a champ at that!

I've been playing with Distress Inks again and inked up another label on which I stamped the sentiment. I sponged on several colors that blended with my patterned paper--Life's Portrait by Webster's Pages, spritzed it with water, dried it with my heat tool, and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black. A sheer ribbon, some black crystals, and some tiny Prima roses finished the card off. I love the Shabby Chic romantic look.

Here's the inside:
