Big Birthday Wishes

I'm doing really well with birthday cards, not a single store bought card sent so far this year (yes I know it's only January!)....


I tried to add depth by inking the stamps with (subtle) multiple colours....

Supplies: Stamps - Hero Arts 'Floral'; Papertrey Ink 'Big Birthday Bash' / Tools - Papertrey Ink Die 'Quatrefoil'; Hero Arts-Sizzix Dies 'Floral'; We R Memory Keepers 'Corner Chomper'

I'll be back tomorrow with some wedding invitations so pop by if you can :) xxx

I´ll try not to buy cards this year, too - I think I will make it. ^^ But you are right, it´s still January, we´ll see in December what we did. This card is great, you always seem to find the perfect matching colours. And I love the background, really impressing. Can´t wait to see the wedding invitations! :)

Lovely card Steph, love the colours, but my first thought was 'did she make those flowers from several PTI stamps?'. Haha. You have given me an idea though! ;o)

Thanks so much for kicking me back into Blogland. Your lovely compliment you left on my post had me grinning and blushing from ear to ear! *hugs*
