Sending a wave on your birthday

I'm back with another card that I created for a couple of challenges.

I started with a panel of watercolour card and did some ink smooshing using CP inks and a piece of plastic packaging. The dolphin (outline) die and sentiment stamp are part of a set that came with a UK stamping magazine from Practical Publising. I die cut the dolphin from some Centura Pearl cardstock (Crafter's Companion) from a variety pack. I stamped the sentiment using Navy ink (HA). The panel was die cut using a stitched rectangle die (SSS) and matted onto dark blue card before adhering it to my white card base. I continued the sentiment on the inside of the card and added the birds.

I'm playing at:

CAS Watercolour - Something blue

Seize the Birthday - #168 Anything Birthday goes 
(no toppings for me)

ATSM - #346 Anything goes

HLS Watercolour - AG (option: Love)
