Another birthday

   I have often looked at the stamps from Acid Drops and Whatnots. As their description says they depict 'life but from a slightly different angle' and I think that the images and sentiments require little being added to them so they lend themselves to making some quick cards.. This one from the 'Do Come Again' set I could nolonger resist buying.
   I matted white card onto black card and fixed two rows of black ribbon round it before matting onto a further piece of white card. The image was coloured using Promarkers and after matting it onto black card I attached it using foam pads. The two corners were stamp in black ink using a stamp from the set. The sentiment, also from the same set was stamped onto white card and matted onto black. Finally I added a bow to the lower of the two ribbon bands.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Whoopsi Daisy - anything goes
   Crafty Calendar - what's new (stamp)
   Papertake Weekly - it's all new (stamp)
   Creative Fingers - anything goes
