Inked Circle background Birthday card (Lia Stamps image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I love this summery image from Lia Stamps, it's actually a full girl but I cropped her so she was larger on my card and just showing her top half. I made the background first by making a circle template with my circle dies so that I could randomly ink circles all over. I started with the lightest colour (yellow) then used light blue up to a teal and dark blue.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
