Birthday card

Todays effort is a birthday card.  This was made entirely from my stash - and the stamp is a good few years old!

My brief was to make a card for a lady who loved her stripey teeshirts.

I used a pearlescent card for my square base card, and matted onto that a square of stripey paper from my stash.

To one side I put some brown ribbon to cover the edge and provide definition to the small stamped teeshirts I cut out from the same stripey paper.

I stamped the image onto the back of the pearlescent card, and coloured it with coloured pencils.  Around the edge of the card I used Pumice Stone distress ink, which matched the yellowy beige colour of the yellow striped paper really well.  Finally I printed out the sentiments on my printer.

Having already taken this picture, I then added three small gemstones in the top right hand corner of the base card!
