Happy Birthday Mandala

Hello friends, welcome and thanks so much for stopping by!  Happy Sunday - it is a lazy-ish one for me - well as lazy as it can be with the 4 year old Grandson having sleepovers!! LOL!  Needless to say - we all sleep well at night! Wink:wink!!

Today I m sharing a card with you that was created using one piece of Kraft paper with a gold Mandala on it - I wanted to highlight the Mandala and sponged it using Imagine Memento Ink in Teal Zeal, followed by Dandelion and Tangelo inks around the outside of  the Mandala.  I have inked  all of the edges using Teal Zeal Ink as well.  The sentiment is from the Spellbinders Stamp and Co-ordinating Die set.  White and Blue Paint pens have been used around the Mandala and Want2Scrap bling added to the centre.

The completed card front has been popped up onto a slightly larger card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 6" x 4" Adhesive Foam Sheets - it gives dimension but not as much as 3D Foam squares.

This card is linked to the following challenges:
