Somehow I have more friends with May birthdays than any other month! So I have been building my stash up for the past few days. I often use a Papertrey Ink stamp set called Stylish Sentiments: Birthday containing a great assortment of birthday greetings. Looking at the collection I stamped a background composed of sentiments plus a few extra symbols. After mounting it on an orange note card, it needed a focal point which an orange vellum banner with "celebrate" provided.
The second card used a Papertrey Ink Feather Finery feather stamped with Versamark ink and embossed in white. Tim Holtz Distress Inks were sponged on the background and a PTI "Hugs" was die cut from silver card stock for the sentiment. This piece was adhered to a woodgrain card stock panel and mounted on a purple A2 card.
