Happy Belated Birthday


Good morning, blog buddies...because it's a short week, I guess we can call today "Hump" day!!  Today's card, for the Curtain Call Challenge, uses the gorgeous colour combo of kraft, white, pink, and black.  There were almost too many combinations going through my head that I didn't know if I could settle on one.  I've been trying to think out of the box (and use up my collection of patterned paper...so I can buy more!! LOL).  This yummy paper is part of My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary collection.  I love how it's double sided for double the fun!!  I went with the bolder pattern.  Still using my new Verve stamps...and still have lots left to ink!!  I don't have many belated birthday stamps but usually need a few of these cards around ;)  Have a wonderful day and thanks for all your inspiring comments :)


What's in it?
Stamps: Verve Big Wish
Ink: versafine onyx
Paper: PTI kraft, cream, polkadot dp; MME Quite Contrary
Accessories: gemstones, nesties labels 4, ribbon, corner chomper
