Sometimes for me the idea of what to do can be tricky. I mean the layout is taking care of, the colors to use is done for me, but picking out which stamp set or embellishments to use can be the stumper. I "LOVE" all of my stamp sets and find it hard deciding on which one. They are all calling my name...Pick me! Pick me!
So I decided to play with Mosaic Madness and Label Love stamp sets. I embossed with the mosaic folder in silver paper for my foreground layer. The background layer is stamped with a few random mosaic tiles in silver ink. To follow the sketch, I used old olive as a sub for the lucky limeade color and placed a 3/4" strip across the card. I also used a piece of melon mambo dsp from the Quadrefancy DSP pack for the top banner. The "happy birthday" is stamped in black. I punched and cut a layer with the same artisan punch in melon mambo to place behind the stamped one.
For embellishments, I used a metal button tied with silver bakers twine. I also wrapped around the old olive and whisper white background, a piece of silver 1/8" ribbon. I also added two candy dots to the upper and lower stamped mosaic title.
As always, with me, you get to see the inside as well. The inside never has a lot of layers or details, because I want to leave plenty of room for your hand written message, but its still an important part of the card.
