Tree of Dreams Birthday

 I have such a big stash of Lavinia stamps I decided to sit down and use some today!

First, I laid a large circle mask over the 5"x5" panel and used a blender brush to color inside it with Distress Dried Marigold.  I removed that mask and laid down a smaller circle mask over the bottom edge of the big circle and used the same blender brush to color it again with Dried Marigold making it a little darker for contrast.

I stamped the Tree of Dreams off the bottom and side edges a bit.  I stamped the Fairy Charm heart off a branch and the Orchard Grass around the bottom of the tree.

Then I laid the Swiss Dot Stencil over the panel and used a blender brush to add Dried Marigold.  

To finish my card, I stamped the happy birthday.

I'm linking my card to:

Beautiful Julia, I know what you mean about having a stash of Lavinia stamps but not pulling them out as much as I should :)

A beautiful card, Julia. So much richness and layering that you'd never think of it as a one-layer card!
