Just Us Girls #367 - Wild Card Week

Hi all!  I'm late getting this card done for Just Us Girls Wild Card Week challenge!  Too much Halloween partying with my niece and her boys last night! 
Maria has chosen a cool challenge for this week.  It's to make the sentiment the focal point of your card. Love it!
I pulled out this happy birthday background die and went to work!  I die cut it from white cardstock and then got my card base cut and scored.  I laid the base on some scrap paper then laid the die cut on top.  I made tick marks between the words on the scrap paper to let me know where my colors had to change.  Then I went to work sponging the card base in rainbow color order.  When I was done, I hit it with the heat tool to make sure it was dry before adhering the die cut with liquid adhesive.  To finish it off, I just added some sequins in matching colors. 
You can see more inspiration from the JUGs design team and our October Guest, Jaydee, on the JUGs blog.  I'd like to thank Jaydee for being such a great guest this month at JUGs!
Thanks for stopping by!
