Cinnamon Birthday

I made this card for a teenager's birthday using the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.   The stamp is Penny Black's 'Cinnamon' which I bought last year and never used, so it's perfect to link to Darnell's NBUS challenge.  I'm also linking to the current Seize the Birthday challenge where 'Anything Goes'.

Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk 
Stamps: Penny Black 'Cinnamon' and Hobby Art 'General Greetings'
Punches: Woodware corner rounder, Woodware regular and mini hearts
Ink: Memento Black Onyx
Paper: Pink/blue stripe paper 
Colouring: Promarkers

I covered the front of the card with striped paper.  The image was stamped onto white card, trimmed to size, the left corners were rounded and coloured with Promarkers.  This was then attached to the card front.   I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of card, trimmed the left edge, layered it onto a strip of paper before attaching it to the card with foam tape.  I punched a white mini heart, layered it onto a regular heart punched from striped paper and attached it to the card front.
