Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone
I did a very simple card for today's post. I made an A-2 card and cut an oval out of the front of the card. Next, and I've wanted to try this for a while, I stamped around the oval to give the appearance of a full lush wreath of sorts. Next I added a back to the inside of the card, and I stamped the sentiment. Lastly I added a few small vines to the sentiment area to finish it off. All of the stamps I used with the exception of the sentiment are in the watercolor area of the Art Impressions store.

Supplies Used:
Art Impressions Stamps -  E597 Happy Birthday, BB2061 Sm Vine, AA1366 Leaves, AA3017 Daisy Bunch, AA1366 Leaves,  AA1368 Teeny Tiny Flowers, B3494 Twigs, AA3384 Tiny Vine, AA1283 Fern
Inks used- Distress Ink Gathered Twig, Adirondack Lettuce & Eggplant
White CS

I love the fact that the Art Impressions water color foliage stamps can be used for some many different things besides scenes.

Very pretty card! When I first saw it, I thought of Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamps...they have similar type small stamps to work like that. Great job!

Barbara, LOVE the use of colors in this card. It's gorgeous! Blending tiny images and inks is one of my favorite things to do. You've done it beautifully!
