Have a Beauty-full Birthday

I was excited to see my good stamping buddy and fellow Paper Doll, Joanne Travis, as Queen for the Day over at Split Coast this week!   I cased her pretty CAS Birthday card

I used different colors and stamps and turned the sketch on it's side. I don't have any frame embossing folders like Joanne used on her card  (gasp!) so I just embossed my whole card - papers and sentiment - with Swiss Dots ( this technique is called embedded embossing) then added my bird cage with foam dimensionals.

I'm also entering this in the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger  - Some Royal Fun.


My stamps are from  a lovely set called Fly Free from The Craft's Meow.  In case you don't know - The Craft's Meow is owned by my good friend Lisa - who was the design team coordinator for Waltzingmouse before she took the plunge to open her own company!   I'd love to have you check out her store!

Stamps: The Craft's Meow - Fly Free

Paper: WHite - PTI, DP Kioshi Paper Pad/Basic Grey, Happy Spots Text Style - PTI
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Ranger Distress Victorian Velvet
Accessories: swiss dots embossing folder - Provo Craft, foam dots
Techniques: embedded embossing
