Birthday Wishes

I'm just so happy how this card came together - I used the February sketch #27 at Stamplorations for my layout.  As I selected the designer paper strip to use, the idea to stamp a rose and use the colours of the flower on the panel came to me and that lead to the antique colours - darker shades I would not usually tackle. I used a torn page - something else I find hard to do - destroy a book. I coloured the IBS Rose with Distress Inks, mounted it on dark brown which I cut with deckle scissors and stamped the sentiment in brown. I used a narrow band of butterflies to finish the card. Thanks for taking a peek Robyn
