I simply chose the color combination for my card - light blue, dark gray and black mainly. I die cut the layers and assembled them with adhesive first and foremost.
Next, I die cut the word Wishes from the Tag die set 3 times using white, black glitter and light blue card stock. I stack all three layers but off set slightly each time adding the Birthday sentiment over the top. Added just a bit of highlighting on the top layer with alcohol marker and adhered it over the card panel with foam tape for dimension.
Finally finished off with quick touches of the Ebony Opal gems after adhering the completed panel to a white card base. And that was it. Sometimes, easy does it :)
Thank you for stopping by and wishing you all a happy crafty new year!
