Happy Birthday, Sunshine!

I had a few minutes the other day while the little guy was playing in the tub. 
My craft room is across the hall so I grabbed one of my stamp sets called "Typically Teen" and my new distress ink pad "mustard seed".
I grabbed some scrap paper and stamped here and there, 
added some different colors and liked my color scheme.
I decided to try a sun ray pattern with the stamp I had been using 
and the color combo I had put together.

Here is the result:

Once the ray was finished, I added a sentiment in a black and the
 the word "sunshine" in the orange to be a bit playful. 
I finished the card with a light mist of Perfect Pearls and water to add some sheen.

Stamps: Typically Teen by Karen Baker for The Craft's Meow and Harold's ABCs by Lawn Fawn 
Ink: Distress inks in mustard seed, spiced marmalade and pumice stone, black memento
orange cardstock: Bazzill
