Soft Sage Birthday...
Firstly I want to announce the winner of the demo pack from Monday, the winner selected at random from all the comments and emails was Martin Elly if you want to email me on Lockers@live.co.uk I will get this posted out to you!
Back to today and another colour I use very rarely however with the soft sage colour in my paper pack I have finally found a green shade that is subtle yet vibrant enough to appeal to me!
This card is deceptively simple as the paper pad dos all the work for you its juts a case of matting and layering the different papers. I stared by stamping the March's child poem stamp onto bright white foundation card using watering can archival ink. I cut this out using the square die in the New York Union Square die set from Sue Wilson for Creative expressions. Next I cut the larger detail die in the union square set in coconut white card to soften the card.
To make up the card I tied a piece of green / ivory grosgrain ribbon across the top of the first layer adding the stamped sentiment over this. I then tied a large bow using more of the ribbon and added pearl swirls and mini roses ( from my stash) across the front.
