Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone – how has your weekend been?  We have had a lovely couple of days here in Sydney with about 19 degrees and glorious sun shine.


We have a new challenge this week at Come and Get It is Adult Birthday.


So I have created a sort of Vintage look card using the Elegant Lines Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. 


The cardstock is Marina Mist, Whisper White with a touch of Crumb Cake.


I embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock and then swiped the Marina Mist ink pad across the embossed cardstock.  I added a little bit more ink with a dauber in both Marina Mist and Crumb Cake.


I added a couple of Crumb Cake Swirls by using the Swirls Scribbles Sizzlits Die and a handmade stubby tag in Whisper White, stamped a sentiment in Crumb Cake and added a bit more ink around the edges with a dauber.


The ribbon is the 1-1/4” Marina Mist Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and I added a pin from the Vintage Trinkets embellishments.


Here is my card:







Below is close up of the ribbon and the sentiment which is from the On Your Birthday stamp set.
