CR84FN Waltzing Birthday...

Hiya!
After getting quite a few things done this week I treated myself to sitting down and watching the French Open and making a card today! I loved the combination of this week's Waltzingmouse sketch with the CR84FN colour chalenge:


I have been loving playing with my birthday pressies (Waltzingmouse stamps!) and this card was so much fun to make:


I created the background with doily stamps and Baja Breeze ink then sponged around the edges with Tea Stain ink (from SU's distressing kit) and roughed-up the edges with a file from the same kit (am loving this at the moment!). The label was embossed with white onto Crumb Cake cardstock and cut with the cordinating nestie. The circle was stamped with a greeting in Baja Breeze and a little detail from the doily set with Tea Stain ink. I added some tiny pearls to glam in up a bit! The ribbin is retired So Saffron grosgrain and I added a lemon button to the centre with some linen thread. The Baja Breeze layer was punched along the bottom to get the scallop look.

Thanks for stopping by!

x Amy

What a BEAUTIFUL card, Amy. Love the contrast between the crisp detail of the doily stamps, and the distressed, sponged edges. Stunning.
