Freshly Made Sketches......Birthday Wishes

Happy Monday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.

I am enjoying the Moon Lake stamp set from the past mini, a friend let me borrow, I am sad this one did not make it to the new catalog, I love the images in it and it makes guys cards really easy.

For this card I used the goose and cattails stamp. I stamped it with black stazon onto white card stock.
I then used my aqua painter and ink pads to lay in some color. Keeping it fairly simple, I used Crumb Cake ink for the goose and tops of the cattails and Old Olive for the bottom of the cattails.
The water and is washed in with Pool Party and a bit of Lost Lagoon and the sky is Soft Sky ink.

The sentiment is from the Build a Birthday stamp set.
The base of the card is Basic Black.
I mounted the image piece onto some Silver Foil paper and then edged that with some DSP from the Neutrals pack.
I then added two small banners in the bottom corner using the same DSP and a piece of the Silver foil. I added a couple of staples and it is done.
I love the clean look of this card but the picture does not really show the silver foil as well as I hoped. My card ended up being slightly smaller that the average A2 size because I had stamped and colored my main panel on a piece of white before I realized the piece was not quite as long as I thought, so I just cut down the card base a bit to make it fit. :)

Thanks for stopping by today!
