For Rachel

Here’s a 7″ tall birthday card I made today, using the first Viva la Verve sketch of this month. I paper-pieced the birthday cake from Verve’s Birthday Bash stamp set with striped Bella Birds designer paper and colored the candles with Copic markers. It was the perfect image for trying out my new Liquid Pearls, too.

The sentiments were stamped with Chocolate Chip ink on two embossed oval die-cuts and placed on top of the classy label die-cuts. I tied two buttons to the So Saffron ribbon with embroidery floss.

Thanks for stopping by!
