Add a little dazzle and Avery Elle blog hop day #1

Add a little dazzle has another fabulous collaboration this week.
We are joining up for the week with Avery Elle :)

For my card i have used Pucker me pink craft metal sheet from add a little dazzle to cut the 'happy' word using Avery Elle's Simply said happy die..
I made the background using spun sugar and picked raspberry distress inks using the circles from Avery stamp set Bright days.
 Then used White Avery Elle ink over the top. I then set aside to dry. 
On some water colour card i stamped the party animal stamp in spun sugar distress ink and then partially stamped in picked raspberry and used a water brush to blend the inks, then  fussy cut out.

I placed everything on the card before stamping the sentiment from handwritten notes , I masked of the other parts so i just used the word 'Birthday'. 
Once everything was adhered in place i finished with some Avery Elle sequins.
