C&S 3, Day 1: Inlaid Birthday card

Hi again,

I had some more ideas on inlayed cards. I love this technique. I've done it before, but it never occurred to me, to layer my die cuts. Unfortuneately, I don't have many dies yet, I'll have to make the best of what I have...

For the panel I used my new IZINKs, some distress ink and lots of water to create a huge mess. I didn't like the panel, but I had put so much frustration in it, that I went ahead anyway. And now I quite like it after all. I also  love the colorful flowers and "happy" that I cut out of the panel, I'll try to use them too...

By now, day 2 is up, but I haven't checked yet. I wanted to get this card done dirst. I'm building suspense for myself...
