Poppy Birthday

This is a card I submitted for the Splitcoast Stampers Wednesday Sketch Challenge.  I am again using the distress paint and embossing folder technique.  I will be back later today with stepped out directions for the technique.  In the meantime if you go onto the Splitcoast site kdunbrook has samples of this technique in her gallery.  Also in my sidebar under blogs I visit she is 'Snippets". On Youtube you can check out Girlgeeklovesstampin as she has a very easy to watch video on the technique.
