I first stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up! called Birthday Wishes for You in black Memento onto a piece of Silver Foil card stock. I used several colors of Stampin' Blends to color the inside. I noticed that if I colored over the black Memento it would get lighter - I think it's because of the foil type cardstock. So after I finished coloring it in, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line it up and stamped again using Versamark and heat embossed with black powder. As you can see, I didn't line it up perfectly and it has a little shadow - a happy mistake as I really like it that way. After it cooled down, I swiped the Versamark pad over the top and covered it with holographic embossing powder and heat set. There's a lot of texture to the main panel and it also intensified the coloring. For a bit of color I added a bit of polka-dot washi tape.
