Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone! My name is Danielle Higginbottom-Brown and this is my first post as part of the Design Team!  I chose Sherri Baldy's stamp - Fly Away to use as my first project.  I just love this stamp and had a lot of fun working with it.
For this card, I used pink cardstock as the background, then added this gorgeous patterned paper by DCWV over my stamped image.  I then used my Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Worn Lipstick to edge the pink part of the card and also the patterned paper.  I outlined with a fine tip black pen a border around both the pink cardstock and the stamped image.  I then painted the black outline with Mister Huey's Ink in Cameo. To colour my stamp, I used my Water Colour Pencils.
 To finish off the card I used some white seam binding to make a bow.
Thanks for taking the time to view my card, and I'm looking forward to posting a new design tomorrow!
