Happy Birthday greetings

My Deep Red Stamp card today features this Flourish with Leaves stamp that can be found at A Cherry on Top  and at Scrapbook.com


My inspiration for the card comes from Nina B for the doily and Jennifer McGuire for the hearts. My card is a large one for me 4 1/2 x 7. It's always nice to try something new. 
I heat embossed the stamp with Versa Mark ink and Ranger red embossing powder. I cut the piece down and matted it with patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket.


The red patterned paper is also by Cosmo Cricket, doily by Little Yellow Bicycle, and cardstock by Bazzill. 


The sentiment is a rub-on from a convention years back. They didn't come in a package just stuffed in a goodie bag I'm afraid. The hearts are a die cut by Papertrey Ink. The paper is by Stampin Up and I covered it with distress ink. Then I applied a Wink of Stella clear gold pen on them and finished up with some Glossy Accents.


Thanks for looking.
