Happy Birthday

Hello! For my card today I used FOUR different stamp sets and 3 of them are background stamps! Can you spot em all??? Ok, I'll point them out. ;) Oh, and they're all from PinkByDesign. The main portion is the Newsprint background stamp. I stamped it on white and used Tim Holtz distress inks in Old Paper and Antique Linen...in fact, those are the inks I used for this entire card. I then stamped the Canvas Backround stamp and inked it up. I punched the butterflies out of some of it, and used the rest to make the strip at the bottom...I stamped over that with the Distressed Music background stamp and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  
The perfectly shabby sentiment is from the Vintage Greetings set which I just LOVE and think is a total must have!!! Okie dokie, that's my card for today. Gotta get back in front of the t.v. court is back in session! I am OBSESSED with the Casey Anthony trial...I know I'm not alone there! HA

  6. Which white pen do you use? I too like to outline stitch but I don't always have a consistent flow with my white pens. I really enjoy your cards and have added so many things to my wishlist from your blog. I'm a proud Air Force Mom.
