Now, on to my card. . . I made this card using more of my Inque Boutique stamps. The card base is rhubarb from Paper Source and the strip across the bottom is SU sahara sand. I stamped the arrow a couple of times on white scraps using Colorbox chalk rouge and warm red and then punched out circles from them and mounted them on the strip of sand. Birthday is stamped in warm red and rouge is sponged around the edge. I layered that on a piece of chocolate from Paper Source that I cut out using my Nestabilities. I just cut it down to make it the right height. I also used them to make the circles. The scalloped circle is sahara sand. For the white circle I stamped the journal lines with rouge and the Happy with chestnut roan. This piece is mounted with pop dots. The arrows are stamped with chestnut roan and rouge and mounted with pop dots also.
Be safe and stay warm today! Thanks for stopping.
