CTMH-- Birthday Card-- Jardin Stamp set with La Bella Vie

Hi there,

In January, my family celebrates the birth dates of my sister and mother.  My mother loves the cards I make and uses them as decorations on her mantle.  My sister keeps them around for a bit and sometimes re-gives them:)  Here's the birthday card that I made:

The stamp sets used are from CTMH-- 'Jardin' and for the HB sentiment 'Casual Expressions'. To ink the stamp, I first inked it in Smokey Plum and then rocked the edges in Desert Sand.  This created a 2 toned effect.  I can't seem to get enough of that Polaroid look, so I cut out a picture shape and placed the stamped image behind it.

The paper line is La Bella Vie. If you are in love with this paper, then better get moving because it is only available through the end of January 2013.   I better get moving and stock up!

Thanks, Maureen:)
