70th Birthday Card

For this card I used a digi stamp from Stitchy Bear Stamps I coloured the image using Promarkers (Satin, Caramel & Cocoa) I cut the image out using a Nellie Snellen Circle Frame Die, and chalked the edges to soften the white a bit. The backing papers I have used are from Stamping All Day's download site, with the addition of a cutting from an old book page which I chalked and inked the edges for added "age". The paper lace edging was cut using a Nellie Snellen Boarder Die.

To create the rosette I made four equal loops of ribbon, fastened in the middle and added the 70 which I punched out using my old Sizzix paddle punch as it was just the right size! I then added the Birthday Wishes sentiment which was cut using a Nesties Labels Fourteen Die. A couple of pearls to finish off and it's done!
