Birthday Blessings

Good morning everyone.  Today I have a really sweet birthday card to share.  Having birthday cards on hand are a MUST!!  Birthday's seem to creep up on me so having a stockpile of cards is nice to have.

To get this beautiful effect I cut 3 sizes of white cardstock (3 3/4 x 2 1/2, 4 3/4 x 3 1/2, 5 3/4 x 4 1/2 ).  I used pieces of tape on the backs of these pieces to temporarily adhere them together.  Next I used Elegant Fronds Background stamped Versamagic Wheat and Lace Vintage Labels Three stamped with Memento Bahama Blue.  Once the images were stamped I separated them and added cut pieces of blue and green cardstock between each layer.  Once the layers are put back together it gives the amazing effect that you see here.

The image in the center of the card is also included in Lace Vintage Labels Three, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with copics and diecut using Spellbinders Classic Circles and matted onto Spellbinders Lacey Circles.

The cute Birthday Blessings tag sentiment is also in Lace Vintage Labels Three, stamped with Memento Bamboo Leaves diecut with Spellbinders Double Ended Tags.  The bakers twine is from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit today.  I hope you have a wonderful day!!
