A Leafy Birthday Card

A good morning everyone, it's a damp dull sunday morning here in the south of birmingham. Myself and hubby had a very busy day yesterday as we had our 20 month Granddaughter for the day. We took her to a local park and art centre as it was beautiful bright sunshine, cold but the sort of day to get some fresh air.  We took some bread and fed the ducks etc.. As there are several large pools there. She wore both us and herself out, it was smashing.

Anyhow todays card is a leafy stamp from hero art.  It's a lovely stamp which I first seen on Sandra's blog last year,  it is so versatile to use for different types of cards.  I overstamped it overlapping slightly using gold and green. Materials I have used:-

                                     Hero Arts leaf stamp
                                     Encore ultimate mettallic gold stamp
                                      Memento 'pear tart' stamp
                                      Bits of coloured ribbon from stash
                                      6" x 6" card base
                                      Kanban sentiment from stash.

See you all soon, have a good Sunday,
