Banner Birthday

Inspired by …

I kind of went with the sketch initially, but then it morphed into what you see in the photo. Used some wood grain pp and added it to dark gray card front. Cut out various banners from scraps and added them on top. Stamped flowers with Distress Oxides using an incentive set from GKD called Fancy flowers. Fussy cut them and some leaves out. Added them as shown curling them up a bit here and there. Sentiment is from Stamping Village, a new set that just arrived and I added it to one of the banners after colouring it. Not my usual style of card but I like the end result. I may add a bit of sparkle to this before sending to someone, but too late for the photo now.

    1. Thanks Bonnie. At first I thought this was going to be a disaster, but I managed to avoid it and it worked out.

  1. The gray wood really sets off the lovely flowers. I haven’t gotten the Stamping Village birthday set yet. My local store has it but I’m waiting for them to open.

    1. Thanks, my set only arrived a couple of days ago. Now I need to use it. I got mine on E-Bay but it took forever for the vendor to mail it. Glad you like my effort.

  2. Thanks Gayle. I seem to make cards all at once. On the weekend I just didn’t feel like it and was too busy on Monday so I’ve done them all since yesterday morning. It helps that it has been raining as I prefer to be indoors then.

  3. Thanks Lisa. One of our past StampTV members actually gave me some of her incentive stamps. She had doubles and knew I was still picking up some of the kits so she sent them to me. The generosity of some of the people I’ve met on line is astonishing.

    1. That was nice of her. I used to get incentive stamps a lot that way. I was thinking of the birthday set by The Stamping Village. I have stamped a couple of the images and that is all. I do agree as our online friends can be quite nice.

  4. Thanks Golda – I’m sure you’ve experienced how a card starts as one thing and ends up something else. I like when that happens.
