Happy Birthday



I'm a little late to the waltz....but I was so excited to stamp something last night when my new stamps arrived!

Photobucket

I stamped the oval frames and cameos with Fresh Snow (PTI) ink onto kraft cardstock. I went back and added a small flower from Eat Cake with Grape Jelly ink (Memento). For the center of each flower, I used my Sakura Souffle pen.

The sentiment, from Say it Loud, was heat embossed with clear ep (Filigree) onto a die cut (Mat Stack 4, PTI) in Vintage Cream cs (PTI). The card base is Lavendar Moon, as well as the satin ribbon (PTI).

Thanks for waltzing by!
Melissa

I see arriving late as a fashionable statement y'know (well that's my excuse for being late all the time LOL!)
Certainly making an entry to the Waltz with your new stampy goodies - love the cameo background you've created!
