CR84FN49 - Birthday wishes ....

... Good morning all - this is a scheduled post as I'm going to be really busy today doing the last of my sorting out and actually packing our suitcases.  Tomorrow the removal team arrives and starts to pack up the house!!

It's week two for our wonderful CR84FN49 colours - kraft, yellow and grey (silver) and I've a birthday card to share with you this week.  It's a really clean and simple design and I've used the layout from last week's Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge - WMSC86 - didn't get to submit it to the challenge, but I really liked the layout.

I did think of using ribbons on my card, but decided instead to stamp this lovely Celtic scroll  onto the card.  I stamped the image in grey and then over stamped again in yellow.  I used kraft card to make the lovely lotus pendant and stamped the medium sized rose three times onto white card.  I used Promarkers and distress ink to colour the rose.  I did consider adding a touch of green for the leaves, but found this soft silver grey card in my stash and used that instead.  I finished off the card with a simple sentiment and some accent corners.  This card is for Betty, one of my Craft Club friends.

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Roses in Bloom, Eat Cake, Oval Classic Frames, Celtic Heritage
Inks: Distress - Mustard Seed; Stampin' Up! - Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight; Memento - London Fog
Spellbinders:  Lotus Pendant (S4-269), Foliage (S4-328)
Accessories:  Card from stash
