Happy Birthday swirls

I signed up for Clean and Simple online card class.  
Karolyn Loncon  taught this pretty rest technique called Velveteen stamping with with pigment ink - then you stamp over it with hybrid ink -- I used dye ink, which still came out ok.You can see the swirl stamped image a bit better in this photo:

All stamps are from Paper Trey Ink, except the background stamp.  
I am putting this into the following challenges:
1. Just Us Girls where the focal point is the sentiment:
2. Monday Mood Board - I love the colors in the top right photo -- and I have a snow day today -- so I got to play -- perfect for a Monday!
3. Seize the Birthday anything goes:

I am putting this into the following galleries:
1. Paper Trey Ink February Inspirations - My design is after the sketch in the center of this image:

2. Clean and Simple Card Class - day 3
