The background was made with fabric tape (must have been before washi tape) I have had it for over 5 years and I used most of the roll. The stamp I used is from House Mouse Designs called Inner Tube Nap, the Happy Birthday is cut with an Impression Obsession die.
Since there was a seashell theme happening I just had to use some Seashell brads from the
On to the second card
I kinda went freestyle with this card so I could feature the silk flower (there were two in the package) I received it from a Secret Sister swap and the date on the back of the package was 2005, so I'm shopping my stash big time. I made a Birthday card with the patterned paper so had some leftovers so using a one inch punch I made 8 patterned and 8 plain, did double sided tape on a piece of cardstock and very carefully lined them up and attached them, I then ran the finished piece through the cuttlebug with an embossing folder. Then layered it on green and a blue postage stamp die (unmarked) The Happy Birthday is also an unmarked die.
Close up of the silk flower, finally I had a reason to spring it out of it's 2005 package.
I would like to enter this in:
