Birthday Wishes

This is another card I've made for Darnell's NBUS Challenge using a NBUS stamp I've had for a while but never used before.  I'm also entering the Alphabet Challenge 'O for Oval', A Gem of a Challenge 'Birthday Card' and Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge



Card blank: 6" x 4" white silk
Stamp: Impression Obsession 'Girl Swing', Woodware 'Salutations'
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Ovals Small'and 'Classic Scalloped Ovals Small'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Card: Black matt
Paper: Wild Rose Studio 'Blackberry Lane'

I stamped the sentiment in the lower corner of the card and then die cut and embossed a scalloped oval above it.  I die cut a scalloped oval from a piece of black card and attached it to the rear of the scalloped oval.  I stamped the girl onto a piece of wildflower paper and attached it to the rear of the aperture.  To finish I covered the inside of the card with a piece of white card to cover the papers and card.

A gorgeous elegant card Kath and such a pretty image and looks great with just that little bit of colour on the flowers, and the ovals show the image off beautifully. x
