Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A happy Wednesday to you all!

My card today is made using one of the new torn stamps by Sheena Douglass.  This is the clematis stamp set and loving these sets of stamps.

Step by Step

1. A5 Kraft Card is the base card and I have wrapped cream ribbon around purple card before adhering to base card.
2. The topper I made by first creating a Ombre effect with Aquatints, I then stamped the image with Versafine in black them embossed with WOW embossing powder. On another sheet of card I stamped again coloured the torn effect and clematis with Aquatints, cut out then decoupaged over the stamped image.
3. I matted and layered the topper onto green card.
4. To finish off I made a double bow and added a resin heart, 3 pearl gems and the birthday sentiment.
