Happy Birthday card

My card for today is a little bit busy for me but it's good to try something new. This card base was white and I used RI distressing inks to alter it's color. Also the tag started off as a nice BG tag and I heat embossed it with off white embossing powder-I'm not sure I like it-and then I inked the entire tag with distressing inks. 


I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Bearly Mine(TU#15)-Use a tag on your project
Ruby's Rainbow(W#8)-Vintage
Penny's Challenge(W#58)-Alter it. (the tag is by BG and I heat embossed it and inked with RI inks)
Paper Pretties(W#163)-Embossing
Southern girls Challenge(TH#23)-Happy Birthday
Sugar Creek Hollow(SA7-23)-Tag it
Crafty Ann's Challenge(SA#45)-Embossing
Stamp Man challenge(F#27)-Anything Tim (the distressing inks and tool used are TH)
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
