CAS mixed media birthday

I have a fun birthday card to share with you today, based on a very easy mixed media technique that I learned about in the recent mixed media class at StampNation. To create a background like this one, you only need some acrylic paints and an old credit card to scrape the paint across your card surface.

I die cut my panel using one of the Crazy running double stitch dies by CUTplorations and adhered it to my base card. The birthday die is also by CUTplorations, while the wishes stamp and the arrow stamp are from a stamp set by Catherine Pooler (Simply the Best).

I'm linking up my card at:
