Birthday

Hello..I'm here with my last August birthday card. (I think!). This image is from an Inky Antics clear set that I used in an earlier post, doing it up in blues. This recipient loves mauve & pinks, so used some different colors of copics. The cardbase is a mauve textured Bazzill. Background border is a strip cut from a paper pack, overlaid with the Memory Box Tessatina Border (from http://www.oozak.com/proddetail.php?prod=MBC98302). Rusty has the best prices I've found for Memory Box dies, along with fast shipping. Used the Scor buddy for some top & bottom trim, added an gold rub-on strip for some bling. The focal image was diecut with a SB circle, don't remember which size, matted on the matching SB scalloped circle die. I cut out part of the matting background since only the outside part shows. This also trims a little off the weight of the card if you are mailing, and additionally you have a snippet to use on another project. (Thrift tip!). The sentiment was punched on a piece of scrap white c/stock that was on the desk, using a SU punch, sponged with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. The scalloped square mat was punched with a slightly larger SU scallop punch, and sponged with DI Victorian velvet. Thanks for surfing by to visit.
