Happy Birthday

Hi there!

I am so happy tomorrow is Friday - I am looking forward to getting my hair done and then having a nice relaxing weekend :)

Today I wanted to share this card I made for a friends birthday. This stamp is called 'Fashionably Wrapped' by Penny Black and the stamp actually has this lovely lady holding a bouquet of holly. By masking or in this case cutting it off, this stamp becomes more versatile and is perfect for birthdays!

My fashionable lady was coloured with copics and cut out separately. The present is patterned paper from Basic Grey and the ribbon was coloured with distress inks.



Thanks so much for stopping by - I really appreciate your visit :)

Way to work those stamps for whatever season you want. I just made a birthday card with a holiday die and was thinking of your previous challenge... too bad inspiration didn't hit me then!

Fab card Judith - I love that you can get all that etra mileage from your stamp by snipping away the festive holly! Now she is great for all occasions ;)
