ATC: Birthday Girl

The theme this week #206 at Wicked Wednesday is Birthday Girl.

I made this very pink ATC.

The background is a Heartfelt Creations stamp  called Vintage Morning Background. This is one of those stamps that has a matching die set, however I like the look of the stamped image with the speckled background. It was stamped in Memento Rose Bud.  The edges of the card were inked, and a little ink was blended onto the card.

The image is from a set called Bentley Bear Thank You Collection which was a free gift with  Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine - I don't know which issue, as I bought this at a bargain price from Ebay! Bentley was stamped on to a snippet of white card, coloured with Spectrum Noir markers, then cut out leaving a thin white border. I decided to colour the border in very pale grey so that it blended with the background a little better. Bentley was attached to the ATC on foam pads.

The rose banner at the bottom was dry embossed using another free gift - a folder from May's Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine Issue # 156. The embossed card was then inked with Rose bud, cut out and attached on foam pads.

The sentiment is from a Little Claire Designs set called Lovely Bunny.  It was stamped on to a tiny piece of spotty sparkly vellum and cut into a tag shape. It was attached with an embossed rosebud on a foam pad.

The roses and the bunch of flowers were dotted with a quickie glue pen and holographic glitter was applied.
