Birthday blast

DO you remember those children's toy jack-in-the-boxes?   That's what this reminds me of.  It's a party in a box.

I love smooshing distress inks and used that technique to make a background - such a blast of colour (in real life it is brighter than the pic).

What a fun card Carol - it would be great to see it IRL with the colours full strength - isn't frustrating when the colours in the photo are not 'true'.
