Happy Birthday

Hello! For my card today I used the fabulous new Herringbone background from PeachyKeenStamps. I ombre stamped it by inking up the stamp from light to dark with soft cantaloupe, fresh peach, and pale tomato shadow inks. {Pssst....this stamp is on SALE} I made the gold papers with tarnished brass Tim Holtz distress stain. I even used it to stamp those dots from a retired stamp. 
I stamped the greeting from the fantastic Reverse Sentiments set by PeachyKeenStamps with pale tomato shadow ink. A few sequins and the card is done. :)

  1. Everything stamped or inked! I have not played with the Brass Distress Stain much but love the gold look and easy to use. Good to see it will stamp nicely also. Great job on your card.
