It is a beautiful fall day here in the Buffalo, NY area. Sunny and about 60 degrees. Personally, I'd like it about 10 degrees warmer, but in this area it would be a little unseasonable, but that would be fine with me. It has been gorgeous though, let's hope it continues.
Today I'm showing you a birthday card. I love this leaf image (also available in digi form) from QKR Stampede and have been playing with it a lot. As we all know, I have a huge stash of scraps, so I went to my scraps and found some fall colors, stamped the image onto them and cut the squares. I then attached them to a piece of cream colored card stock. I don't often ink edges, but in this case I thought it helped to soften the over all look.
I stamped the Happy Birthday with a stamp from the Happy Birthday set from QKR. This is a great set as it includes 4 different sentiments. I used the same scraps for the sentiment and it's layers, then attached it.
I found this orange "ribbon" in my stash and attached it to the card stock and then attached the whole thing with foam tape to a piece of brown card stock, again from that famous scrap stash.
You can see below that I used another piece of ivory card stock with inked edges on the inside.
I hope you have enjoyed my post for today and that you will come back soon.
