Happy birthday

Thought you might enjoy seeing a card I made recently using Studio 490 stamps.

Nature's Art - gingham background, leaf (Olive Archival)
Lower Case Art - newspaper text background
Dimensional Rose Art - find delight...(Jet Black Archival), numbers background (Coffee Archival)
Make Mine Mini Art - windmill flowers, butterfly (Jet Black Archival)
All About Art - polka dot background (Coffee Archival)
Rose Art Part 2 - leafy background (Olive Archival)

The butterfly was stamped in Jet Black Archival onto Clearly For Art and colored with Adirondack markers  The large flower was stamped onto grunge paper in JBA; the windmill flowers were stamped on card stock also in JBA.

Using Tim's Typeset die I cut out the name in turquoise kraft core'dinations and sanded the edges before removing the letters from the paper strip.

I used the following Distress inks:  Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Aged Mahogany, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss.

Miscellaneous:  tan/black and turquoise gingham ribbons, wire for butterfly's antenna, buttons (flower centers), twine (buttons)
