On Your Birthday…

On Your Birthday...
Lots of friends of mine have October birthdays, so I’ve been making lots of birthday cards lately. Here’s one that combines this week’s color (#187) and sketch (#197) challenges on SCS.

I embossed the Pocket Silhouettes images in white on Very Vanilla card stock and stippled Tangerine Tango ink all over it. The Kiwi Kiss panel and the card base itself received a little paper piercing. I finished off the card with satin ribbon tied to an Aged Copper clip.

Thanks for stopping by!
