Birthday Wishes - Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

What an eventful weekend!  Some stamping friends came over Friday night for open stamping and then I went to the Nothern Virginia Demo shoebox swap Saturday morning and not only made some beautiful cards but met some great new demonstrators in the area.  Then we spent the rest of the weekend with the family on early birthday celebrations since I'll be traveling for work this week.  I was also able to spend some time in the studio and made this beautiful card for this weeks Stamping 411 challenge

This card definately has a vintage feel, which I've been really trying to work on lately.  The card is pretty straight forward so I'll just highlight some of the highlights.  The background is Pear Pizzaz cardstock that was run through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder.  Then I sponged the paper with Pear Pizzaz ink to help make the image pop (we did this at the shoebox swap yesterday and I loved the added dimension).  Then I used the Eyelet border punch on the Not Quite Navy cardstock as a mat for the Springtime Vintage DSP.  The greeting is from the Occasional Quotes Hostess Stamp Set and it punched out with the Decorative Label Punch.  The ribbon is the fabulous Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon and I added three Metallic brads in the top right corner. 

I love how beautiful this card turned out!

Have a great week and happy stamping,

Pin It!
