Something a Bit Different

Hi Everyone
Well, we are into February already.  The days and weeks are passing by so quickly at the moment.  I have had the last couple of days at home as I am working at the weekend.  I did manage to get in my crafty room for a few hours.

Todays card share is one I have done using a technique for the background that I have been wanting to try for months.

For the greeny/blue background I used shaving foam and inkadinks from Imagination Crafts.  I did several pieces of it and I love how each pressing into the foam produces a different look.  I used several dies when putting this card together.  Scalloped square from Spellbinders, Happy Birthday die - free with Simply Cards and Papercraft, Dali Art Ornate flower die - free with papercraft inspirations.  The Happy Birthday die was cut from another shaving foam background and matted onto some blue cardstock.  Some dazzlers and gems finished the card.  

This is a bit different for me and I really enjoyed doing the background.  Can see me using this technique again.  Would love to know what you think.  I really do appreciate all your wonderful comments.
