Happy Birthday



This card uses "Life" stamp set as I try to channel some to Debbie Olson's talent! I was very inspired by her framed art piece here. I made this for a friend who will celebrate her birthday this Friday, but it's safe to post now because she doesn't read my blog.



I tried to distress the focal image using my sandpaper thingy and inked all the edges.
I hope to be back soon with photos of the tea party table I'm making for my daughter's 2nd birthday.

Thanks for stopping by!
