Here's my card for Kate's birthday which I had on the desk on Wednesday this week. I played with a few combinations of the floral stamps and changed the format from vertical to horizontal. I added the chook wire as a background to give the whole arrangement a rustic feel and it seemed right to tie a tag on the fence.
You will discern the use of Distress Inks for shading (shabby shutters and broken glass) and the main design is done with Marvy Matchables which I love to use. The tag is punched out of manilla card and I used some little stencil letters which I also bought at Paperific.
The feature is mounted on burgundy metallic card on which is stamped a leafy scroll in silver with Judikins Kaleidescope EP. I mounted the whole on square hammered card stock and shaded the edges with aged mahogany.
Inside I stamped with the same embossing combination one of my favourite messages which is a shade mischievous, "Birthdays are good for you. The more you have the older you get."
Hope you like this little composition. Do give me a comment.
Miles of smiles,
