March seems to be a big month for birthdays in our family! My uncle has just turned 70 so I made him a special card from us all...I chose to use papers from Kaisercraft as I spotted a little bird among the plant and flower sillhouettes and I know he is a nature lover - the butterfly is cut from the same range of paper.
The bottom section is flocked and is DCWV La Creme cardstock.
The main label is from Waltzingmouse's Vintage Labels 2 set and is stamped in Versamark ink and then heat embossed in silver. The number '70' is highlighted in the same way. I also used the Fancy Phrases sentiments to make up the Happy & Birthday portion of the sentiment and also the 'with all our love' which I stamped a little further down onto the patterned paper.
The whole thing is mounted onto some special mirror card and kraft carstock base.
Here's my inspiration for this card:
this week's brilliant Mojo Monday Sketch by Teresa Kline.
