A birthday card

As per usual, my birthday cards are always late, and this one for Hels is no exception! I used the same sketch from The Next Level challenge blogspot. This is a totally different card from the last one, and as I know Hels has received it, I can show you.


I used distress inks in the blues and reds, and all of Tim Holtz's stamps, and the Happy Birthday from The Artistic Stamper range of words. Love the little key from the new charms! I was especially pleased with the bow too. Never could tie a bow for love nor money!
The tag has the bird and branch stamped in 2 diffrent distress ink colours, and set on a distress ink"swiped" glossy tag.

I am hooked on this kind of card... and in case you wondered , I have glued the whole card together, so you have to pull out the tag to read the message.

Off now to look for more sketches to follow :)

It is absolutely stunning - I just love everything about it. I am a bit 'late' looking at all my blog links and those I am following this week - had a mini crisis with 2 inches of hail, flash flooding, and lots of smelly water! Thank goodness 'we' are drying out - 'they' are all coming to clean up, and repair - so all will be sorted this time in a couple of weeks.

It could have been worse - thank goodness my studio shed in the garden didn't get flooded - I would have been devastated if it had. Don't you just love a girl with my priorities LOL
