Birthday card

Tomorrow is my Mother's birthday. She needed a card and I needed an excuse to play with some is the result.

I used my new stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps for the plaid background. The stamp set is called Off Beat Backgrounds and it is so much fun! I then pulled out my Vintage Picnic set from Papertrey Ink and my Prismacolor pencils (which I have not touched in YEARS!) and used them for the center image. I have been meaning to try my hand at coloring with my pencils for a while now. I do NOT want to try Copics as I know I will want to start collecting them too......and I do not need another obsession! After using the blender pencil I was pretty happy with my results.


Ink: Black, Orange Zest and Enchanted Evening (PTI)
Ribbon: Enchanted Evening (PTI)
Stamps: Vintage Picnic and Sign Language (PTI), Off Beat Backgrounds (Waltzingmouse Stamps)
Nestabilities Label Four die (Spellbinders)
Prismacolor pencils

Thanks for looking!

Sherry, your card is beautiful. You may not have the patience to cut & piece but you sure make a simple card look fantastic! I wish I could achieve such a look without all the hooplah! Thanks for visiting my blog :)
