It's Your Day - Take Time for You!!!

The month of August has flown by and today is my last BIRTHDAY themed card for the monthly challenge at One Crazy Stamper.
Just before my move back in May, I cleaned out my Distress Ink Palettes, and just never seemed to have the time to get the inks refilled. So I finally pulled out all of my Tim Holtz Distress Re-inkers and filled my palettes, and the end result is this little birthday card. I inked the House Mouse "Spa Day" with Tsukineko Black Onyx ink and stamped it on watercolor paper, and then got busy using my water brush and the distress inks to color the image. To enhance the bubbles I used Stardust Stickles to add sparkle and shine.
