LOC Birthday Banner

It is Monday morning here and I have taken a break from Christmas cards to show you how the new Sentiment Banners art stamp set from Layers of Color can be used for more than Christmas cards
infact it is full of sentiments for most occasions, along with the gorgeous Banner frame that coordinates with the Spellbinders Ribbon Banners Nestibilitie

The image is from Gifts of Love art stamp set and has been cut using the Standard Circles LG and the Floral Doily Motifs using the Grand Calibur- it cuts so crisp and clean and embosses deeply - perfect!

I love how perfectly the frame fits inside the Ribbon Banners Nestibilitie - the Sentimental Banners art stamp set has been illustrated for Layers of Color by Nina Brackett.  I have finished off with a Seam Binding Bow and a large pearl button.

This card is for the following challenges:
Corrosive Challenges - Punches and/or Dies
 Gingerloft - Vintage or Distressed

  1. Oh Linda, this is so sweet - love your use of the die cuts and that bow is magnificent.

  2. Your stamped work is gorgeous Linda you add so much detail into your work and into the colouring of the images which really shines through.

    I'm sure I see Basic Grey Curio poking it's little head through in the background papers (my fave).
